MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2010

I will make again, maybe not adding the cloves, I'm not crazy about the clove flavor....but is a good and different kind of cookie, I also have to improve on shaping of the dough in the muffin tins, mine was thicker than the pic thus couldn't get as much filling in them, will try to perfect next time!
