Very good. I read some of the reviews and added a teaspoon of butter. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I made them as small as the Kiss. Thanks for the comparison.

My Mom also made these every Christmas and I think they were my favorite one..... although oatmeal raisin cookies may not be Christmasy but I think they might be better! I'm gonna find out tonight! :-)

Probably the easiest cookie I've ever made. They tasted so delicate and yummy.
