    1Steve's Note:

    This recipe appeared about 30 years ago in Family Circle magazine: Cinnamon-sugar "frosts" the tops of these big old-fasioned puffs. They are soft and a bit cakelike and puff up high in the center. I have added chocolate chips to these sometimes too and they were quite nice like that as well :-)

      I am so happy I tried this recipe. The taste of these cookies reminds me of something from my childhood! I only made half the recipe, just to be sure I was going to like them, and now I am really sorry I didn't make the whole thing. My daughter loved them too, and she doesn't usually care for anything that I make a fuss over, typically 12 I guess!! thanks, these will be made again!!
