These are wonderful, my children love them. We usually double this recipe, as they don't last long, and often I make them mini size, as they are quite filling and rich.

My daughter made these yesterday. I liked them better than she did. She wanted a more intense peanut butter flavor; the cinnamon predominates. These came out very light and a bit crumbly, but not dry. I enjoyed them; thank you!

Delicious! Easy to make. I added a little vanilla. Tastes great with a glass of milk! next time I think I want to drizzle a little chocolate over the top of them! YUM!
