Good texture, overall tasted like a spice cookie. I'd cut the salt to 1/4 tsp bc it was overpowering. This cookie was lacking something. Without the chocolate chips it would have been inedible. Possibly some orange zest and a 1/4 cup sugar would have rounded out the flavor.

These are so good. A quiet bite of flavors. My friends all wanted the recipe.
