My mother and I made these cookies quite often when I was a young girl. When I married, she passed on this recipe to me.

"I cooked at a higher temp (450) for a shorter time (9 mins) and substituted ginger(which I had) for the cloves(which I did not have). The cookies were moist and delicious :)"

MY REVIEW

"These are great flavored cookies but they were a little dry. I used a cup of butter instead of the butter-flavored shortening and I used a cup of chopped walnuts instead of the chocolate chips. I even used a quarter cup of whipping cream but they were still a little dry. I will make them again and experiment to get a more moist cookie."

"Great quick cookie! Absolutely adorable...."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2013

"I adjusted this one to accommodate the ingredients I had on hand. Instead of a full cup of butter flavored Crisco, I used 1/2 cup each of regular Crisco and butter. Instead of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips went into the batter. Next time, I'll add some walnuts or pecans."
