    Sackville's Note:

    We fell in love with these cookies when our friend Patricia at La Chatte Gitane (see for her recipes) baked a batch for us. They are so soft and full of cinnamon taste. When I finally got the chance to make them for myself, I couldn't find dark brown sugar so had to use cane sugar instead. This worked out pretty well, but I would recommend sticking with the muscovado sugar if you can find it. I also left out the almonds as we just didn't have any in the house but they do make the cookies look extra special. Reduce the cooking time if you are baking these in a fan oven. The last thing you want to do is overcook them because then they'll lose their charming softness.
