    grungezombie's Note:

    Soft and chewy, these never last long around our house! As written, this recipe makes 2 dozen cookies, I recommend doubling it. Thanks to my mom for snagging this recipe from Mina Newton all those years ago!

      They are nice, not awesome, more caky than cookie. I dont like the clove taste of them very much but they are ok. I wanted to use an alternative recipe from the most popular one, was a good treat but maybe wont make them again. Anyway, thanks for sharing :)
