Wonderful recipe. I halved it and it made 2 dozen good size cookies. Left them in 12 minutes. Easy, fast and delicious. A keeper.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2010

This cookie is one of my favorites. It is fairly easy to make. I really recommend using Penzy's cinnamon for this and even doubling the amount of cinnamon that the recipe calls for. It adds a nice kick and the flavor really comes out. This cookie is also a hit amongst my coworkers as well.
