      These were very good and unique. A step up from traditional cookies like chocolate chip. Mixed reviews from the family...those of us who enjoy spiced wafers and ginger snaps LOVED these (I think my husband ate about 10 in one sitting :)! The couple of kids who do not like those types of cookies did not care for these either. This was fairly easy to prepare and I got 40 cookies out of the recipe. The only thing I changed was using butter instead of butter flavored shortening. In my oven, 8 minutes was the max. Watch while cooking...they are dark brown and you can't really see if the bottoms are burning. Thanks for posting!
