This old-fashioned cookie has a subtle honey-cinnamon flavor and a tender texture. It's been a favorite in my family for years and now it can be one at your house, too. —Rochelle Friedman, Brooklyn, New York

"Don't flatten down like in picture. They stay in lumps. Not a recipe I would try again. Thankfully not a lot of ingredients were wasted. Not much taste."

"These were great! I doubled the recipe because I saw how it only made 16 cookies, and I got 46 cookies(using a 1T sized cookie scoop to make them). The dough was really sticky, but that isn't a problem. The cookies were perfectly sweet, and you could taste the cinnamon and honey. They were kinda dense, but not crispy, which in my opinion is perfect."
