MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2012

This cookie recipe is one of my go-to recipes...I've lost count as to how many times I've baked them! Flavor reminds me of Dutch (Speculaas) spice cookies that I used to dunk in my tea as a kid. Easy to whip the dough up and bake fresh as needed. Also freeze extremely well. Highly recommended recipe to try!
