Terrific cookies. I made them on Dec 22 and I'm pretty darned sure that they aren't going to last till Christmas! They do spread nicely and make lovely crisp counterpart to the fluffy filling. I found that 9 mins baking time gave me the best results. Everyone in the family from the kids to the grandparents will enjoy these lightly spiced and yummy cookies. Thanks so much for this 5 star cookie BK. :D
