I wasn't impressed. The cookies were kind of hard after baking. I don't mean crisp either. I won't make again.



People cry of happiness when I make these cookies. Add a little bit more sugar and cut the frosting ingredients in half and you will have delicious cinnamon shortbread cookies.



I LOVED these cookies. They go good with the brown sugar frosting ( Just dip them in the frosting and wha-la! YUMMY COOKIES....
