I forgot to mention that I cut this recipe in half before I made all the modifications previously specified in my review. I'm sorry if this caused any trouble for anyone.

This is simple to make and good .. I agree, it is more of a biscuit that it is a cookie .. thank you for sharing

These are mildly spiced, easy to make and retain their shape when baking (don't worry about spreading). My dough seemed very dry, so I added more buttermilk. The results are really a biscuit, rather than a cookie or cake, in the true sense of the word. Plain and perfectly understated flavor to serve with coffe or tea.
