Reviews for Giant Spice Cookies
"We love molasses/ginger cookies and cake mix cookies - I don't know why I never thought of combining the two! I made into 20 cookies. Even though the cookies were smaller than the recipe, it did require the full cooking time. As with all cake mix cookie doughs, I put the dough into the fridge for an hour before scooping. To make prettier, I rolled the cookie balls in sugar before placing in oven. Cookies were beautiful. The hardest part of this recipe was waiting for the cookies to cool and set!"
"I have been asked three years in a row to make these. They are delicious."
"these cookies are scrumptious!!! They're not only flavorful, but really chewy.And Sooo easy to prepare."
"I added orange zest to the dough for a bit more flavor. They were easy to make and quite good."
"Fantastic recipe-not only in taste and easy prep., but healthy recipe too! I made these twice already--the texture of this cookie is great-tasting---this is definately a keeper. I am making them now (theyr'e in the oven) for company tonight.Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
