I loved these cookies! They had the perfect amound of spice, nice and chewy, and simple to make. I couldnt find my cookie cutters so I just cut them into squares and made them that way and it yielded about 19 cookies but they were rather large.

I made these for our xmas cookie trays. I omitted the walnuts and after brushing the tops with the egg white, I sprinkled on sparkly sugar. They turned out beautifully. Nice and chewy! DD loves them! :)

These were really good cookies, but for some reason I found the dough too soft and gooey. It might havebeen because I halved the recipe, but next time I'll do the full amount and see whether it hasthe same results. It was still delicious, though

The dough was far too wet and I added almost 1/2 c. flour to make it workable. The taste was good, I definitely remember the egg wash, as it adds a sheen to the top, in addition to a satisfying crunch. If you roll these cookies thicker, they are also nice, though not crispy.

For some reason these came out with a bitter aftertaste... I did drop about a 1/4 teaspoon of extra cinnamon in, maybe that's why. I'll try them again and measure the cinnamon over the counter, and we'll see if they taste better! :o) I agree about chilling the dough before rolling, it was a bit hard to handle.

These are execlent!!!! I only rolled and cut the first batch of dough into stars and then I used a cookie scooper for the rest of the dough. Next time, I would chill the dough for a couple of hours because it was too soft. I also forgot the egg wash but the cookies still turned out great! Thanks for the fantastic recipe Amber!
