These were delicious cookies Starfire. My family & I adored these little treats. They were perfectly spiced and not to sweet. Quick and very easy to make. I added these cookies to my christmas tins and trays this year. Everyone asked for the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing.

Very yummy cookies, I can't stop eating them. I used oil instead of butter (lactose intolerant) so I had to add more flour. My 3 year old son had a lot of fun helping and making the shapes.
