      I made these for my extended family ages 4-73 and even the younger children liked these cookies with the rich chocolate flavor infused with the wonderful spices. The recipe is spot on and were delicious! I am ready to bake another batch for my immediate family!

      Great desert recipe that adds the "spice" to make this simple old fashioned cookie heat up with Guatemalan flair. Great treat. My daughter made them for her Latin American Culture's class. A hit!

      I just had to try this recipe because our home group theme was Guatemalan recipes. The spice combination made me extremely curious. They came out delicious! They are buttery, chocolately, and they have a little kick! Very unique cookie!
