They cookies came out perfect and the taste delicious and preatty. The consistence was just what we need for cutout cookies!<br/>I really love the idea to use macis for this, I never used this spice in this way.<br/>I offered this to my family, they are too tempting and we will not wait until Christmas!<br/>Thanks a lot for this recipe!
Note: The dough can not be rolled after only a few minutes, deffinitly took over 10 minutes. It was an awesome dough to cookie cut on the bright side! The flavor and texture was closer to a crunchy sugar cookie.It tastes fine, just not an animal cracker.
This is a fantastic recipe! I found the animal shaped cookie cutters on King Arthur's website, and this is the first recipe I tried with them. Not disappointed in the least! The dough was easy to work with, and my 2 and 6 year old girls loved to help out. I did not have mace on hand, so I substituted allspice. Used turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw) instead of regular white sugar by personal preference. The cookies turned out so well that they didn't last very long in our house. Husband liked them too. So if you're looking for a fun year-round baking project to do with kids, this is a good one. This also makes a good school lunchbox item for those of you looking to get away from pre-packaged foods in favor of DIY snacks.
