These are delicious! Very chewy, and a very mild heat. I love the touch of cinnamon.

These cookies were a hit. My family doesn't usually like much heat and these cookies have the perfect amount. I'd say they were on the milder side. The Gustus Vitae spice is a nice addition.

Amazing!! Chocolatey, chewy and just enough spice. Spice level is not too bad. I made half the recipe with the powdered sugar/cinnamon mix, and the other half with granulated sugar/Gustus Vitae blend. My kids loved the bigger kick of heat. These are going on this years Christmas cookie plate!
