Top Review by Baby Kato

Another great cookie RecipeNut. My dh loved this one. It was wonderful, a light, fluffy, tender, cinnamon flavored sugar cookie. I did add coarse red sugar to the bottom of the cookie molds and topped off the cookie dough with coarse pink sugar. These were an awesome treat on Valentines Day with a mug of strong coffee. Thanks so much for sharing.
