These cookies fill your home with an irresistible aroma as they bake. My grandmother made them every Christmas when I was a child. I have fond memories of helping her in the kitchen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2010

"These cruncy little cookies are habit-forming! A co-worker brought them in originally, and I hounded her relentlessly for the recipe. The heavy cinnamon flavor sets these apart. I am baking them to give out as gifts. Bonus: Only 2 WW Points Plus per cookie!"
