MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2012

Yuck! I don't even know what else to say. The dough was very strange to work with and they tasted like flour with a hint of spice. I would not recommend these and will not make them again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 29, 2010

While I was making these I knew that something wasn't right. There is way too much oil and not enough sugar in these. The oil was separating from the dough while they chilled. They were very hard to roll out because they were so sticky. The end product tasted like a pie crust with spice in it. They were not like cookies at all. Maybe the sugar and oil amounts got mixed up!
