      Really great cookies, and the nutmeg is suprisingly just right. as I find that nutmeg can sometimes be overpowering. I took them out just before the ten minute mark, as I like my cookies soft, and they were. It did start to get a little brown around the edges, but I liked them that way.

      My daughter needed a food that represented Connecticut, so as Connecticut is sometimes called "The Nutmeg State", we chose this recipe. The cookies were very good. I used the larger amount of nutmeg recommended and the flavor was just right. One set of cookie sheets I took out after 10 minutes. They were soft, but done all the way through. The second batch I didn't get right away, and they were lightly browned on the edges and nicely crispy. Yummy both ways!

      These cookies are just delicious! I made them rather large compared to the yield listed, but that's ok, they still won't last long! DH said these are good "dunkers" nice and crispy! These will be a beautiful addition to my Christmas Cookie Tray! Thanks CB! Made for KK's Christmas Cookie Tag
