Light, cakey, and delicious. Perfect combination of cinnamon and sugar, but with healthier ingredients to make them guilt free! Great with coffee or a big cup of hot cocoa.

Very easy to make. I loved the consistancy, they were cakey without being dry, nice feel. I didn't chill the batter like the recipe suggested, but they turned out fine. All in all a great dessert, I will definately make them again.
These cookies were awesome! Quick and simple recipe. Easy on the eyes, and easier on the belly. More of a coffee cake texture than a cookie. Great flavor, love the cinnamon sugar! I used Splenda, and didn't even miss the sugar. Wouldn't change a thing.
Terrific cookie. Just served them for Easter dessert. Didn't chill them and they were still great. Added a drizzle of icing sugar, cinnamon and water mixture, just to add some flare.
