      I wasn't sure what to expect of this cookie since I never before baked with cloves or candied fruit. Well, what a pleasant surprise! This is a very nice cookie and not too sweet. I used non-stick spray on the cookie sheets. I got 100 cookies out of the batch. I watched the cookies closely since they 'go over the edge' very quickly (cookies are still edible, just a bit crisper). I did do a double take and had momentary panic when I took out 1 stick of butter (1/4 lb as in the ingredients) and then read 1/2C butter in the instructions. It took me a few moments to realize that they were the same. BTW, DH kept telling me 'these cookies are terrible' each time he shoved one in his mouth! LOL. Thanks for a nice cookie.
