These cookies are amazing. The spices and chocolate go very well together!! These are very easy cookies to make, and I usually have most of the ingredients on hand. Enjoy

I liked this recipe but did make some changes. I added more cocoa powder and also added cinnamon and cloves to up the spice factor. In reading the other review I noticed they tended to be dry so I used a whole egg instead of just the yolk and that seemed to work, they ended up tasty, soft and chewy.

I amde these cookies the other night and they were very easy (though quite a dense dough) to make and turned out ok but they were neither chocolaty nor spicy! They are nice and crumbly, like a tea cookie and I'll enjoy eating them but don't think I'll make them again.
