      What a fun recipe! I love this cookie for its wide range of spices. I was disappointed that I didn't taste the rose water the first time I made it, but the honey flavor came through nicely. The second time I made it, I put the teaspoon of rosewater and blended it with the sugar that you roll the dough in. The sugar becomes coarser and the flavor comes through!

      I LOVED these cookies; made them for my Christmas cookie tray and the little bite from the crystilized ginger gave it that something special. I made it as directed with no changes and it was perfect. The only issue I had is mine spread out to much and didn't look as pretty as your photo but the taste sensation made that a none issue. I'll be including these little taste sensations every year.

      Oh My Gosh, these must be the ultimate spice cookies. I had to change one thing , I used orange water as I didn't have rose water on hand. Other than that, by the book and they came out incredible. They have a nice little thin crisp crust with a soft, tender and scrumptious interior. Not at all difficult to make and they perfume the house with a wonderful spice aroma while baking. This is a keeper!
