These are one of the best cookies I have ever eaten. They make up easily, and they disappear fast. I make these every year when we put up our Christmas Tree. I serve them with hot Cocoa while we decorate our tree. I swear the cookies are anticipated as much as the tree!

I used egg beaters and reduced-fat margarine. It still turned out great. Because of the lower-fat, higher-water content, the cookies puffed - so we had Cinnamon PUFFS! Yum! I rolled them in cinnamon sugar and the whole downstairs smelled wonderful while these gems were baking. They tasted good out of the oven and after a few days too! They reminded me of Dunkin' Donuts' donut holes - except not as greasy, sticky, caloric, or fattening. EVEN BETTER! THe way I made it, the calories: 24; fat grams: .86

These cookies are awesome and easy to make too! I am so happy I tried them. Definately not your ordinary Christmas cookie. I think they'd be great with a cup of to do that now.

Made these cookies for a gift and also for Thanksgiving dessert. I was expecting them to flatten out like in some of the photos here but instead the cookies came out as little domes, soft and chewy. Yum!

Instead of buying cinnamon sugar, I mixed my own. This was just enough: 2 1/2 Tablespoons Sugar, 1 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
