I actually wanted to ask a question about this recipe. It looks delish and I would love to make it, but how would I make it a soft cookie instead of a crispy cookie? Any recommendations?

Absolutely loved working with this dough, so easy to roll and form. I did make some of the cookies a little smaller to give my daughter for her friends. I'm really the only fan of crispy snaps in the house but the others actually really liked these. And I LOVED them. The flavors were perfect, perfect amount of sweetness and everything. I added a tiny bit more candies and chocolate chips just because! And I had to lower cook time because my oven is old and cooks fast. I would say they are a great holiday cookie but I can see making these all year long. Great recipe.
