I have mede this cookie exactly as it states and I find it bland. I did remake this and added cinamon allspice and nutmeg and I liked it alot better.



Easy to make but not to my taste.



Great cookie to have with coffee. Not to sweet. It sound weird but they reminded me of pineapple upside down cake in flavor. Very easy to make.
