    Very easy to put together in the stand mixer. Will try some other add-ins next time, the cookie had a very mild flavor. The recipe certainly lends itself to a variety of spices - look forward to experimenting!

    My family loves these! I skipped the walnuts, but otherwise made them as indicated. They're really good.
