I liked these, but didn't love them. I took these to a function this morning as one of four cookies, and these were eaten the least. I may try again and add more spices, as other reviewers have suggested. I also would have to agree with others that they are probably great for kids as they are. I had trouble keeping the bottoms from browning; wish I'd noted the reviewer who suggested lowering the temperature!

They were ok, but not the best flavor and were almost too soft to be considered cookies. The chilling did help though
