      These were wonderful--made them for my cookie boxes this year. I decorated them with the white icing in the recipe and some green and red sprinkles and they were so cute! They were rather soft-a nice texture for a cutout cookie--and the cinnamon/cocoa combination was really, really nice. Excellent! I'm sure I'll make them next year, too. thanks!

      i just made them. The dough turned out perfectly. I added the extra 1/4 cup flour like the one rating suggested. Glad you added this recipe!
