"I made heaping tablespoons rather than the 1/4 cup size. I baked for 20 minutes and they came out beautifully."

"I needed something homemade to send my brother for his Birthday, and these were perfect. They were moist, chewy, and delicious. Instead of cranberries, I used mini chocolate chips. There are a lot of spices to measure, but it is worth the time!"

"I just made these cookies and they are fabulous. More cake-like than cookie but I like them!

Says it makes 1/2 dozen and to use a 1/4 cup size of dough. WHOA those must be the size of my head. I used a generous heaping spoonful of dough and got about 16 cookies out of it. They are 2 in across and thick (cake like texture). A normal size cookie. YUM!"
