Awesome cookies!! I followed the recipe exactly and couldn't be happier with it. I increased the cinnamon because we are cinnamon addicts in this house :-) The cookies were light and buttery - delicious!

Very nice! We thought that they looked a dull, so we pressed slivered almonds into the them before cooking
