I was disappointed in these cookies. The flavor was good, but despite using very chilled dough, the cookies spread into very flat disks. The cocoa and cinnamon left a "dirty" visual impression for me. As I said, I did like the flavor, but could not say that these cookies were pretty enough to use on my Christmas trays.
