This recipe has terrific flavor, but was a NIGHTMARE in my cookie press..... it wouldn't stick to the tray (I tried a baking stone, an airbake pan and a pan lined with silpat) and wouldn't come off the press without making them huge (like 3 pumps each). I tried it chilled & fresh. But, like I said, the flavor is awesome so I may try again but alter some of the ingredients


I really liked this recipe! I thought the sweetness was just right and the flavors of the cinnamon and vanilla came together really well. I also added a little bit of dried orange zest to the dough. The only thing that I had a negative comment on was that the cookies came out slightly dry. The texture was great, but my husband commented that he needed milk after eating a couple of them. I used my new battery operated cookie press that the dough was sooooo easy to work with! I was so excited, after many failed attempts with a cookie press. Definitely a keeper and I'd appreciate if any other reviewer would comment on what I can do to help with the dryness. Thanks!


Very good. The only thing wrong with this recipe - If you are wanting 96 cookies you'd better double the recipe - I have made this several times with the Pampered Chef cookie press and the most I've been able to make is about 45.
