Fabulous flavor in a crisp cookie. Very simple to make. I always double or triple the recipe and they stay fresh in plastic containers for a couple of weeks, if they last that long.

I made these today and I love the flavor. However, I was looking for a more of a round style teacake like the images I grew up with. These are more on the puffy style. Thanks for sharing. Keeping the recipe for the future cookie drop type.

I love these! Even my picky 10 year old son and husband (he doesn't like sweets) love these. I added an additional 1/4 cup butter.
