    My cookies flattened out and are very crumbly. You can't pick one up without it falling apart. I used gf flour. What did I do wrong??

    I made these non-gluten free about 10 times now, and they are delicious! I play around with the amount of spice each time, depending on how I'm feeling, and have yet to find the place where I have too much cinnamon and ginger. ;)<br/><br/>I do have to add a splash of milk to make the dough workable, perhaps because I'm living in a pretty dry client.

    Delicious! I used Tea Masala (original chai tea spice blend) and used about 3 tsp for a nice chai tea kick. I'll definitely make these again....soon.

    These are heavenly! Made gluten free and used erythritol instead of sugar and they were so fragrant. Will definitely make them again! Thanks for posting!<br/>Made for National Diabetes Month.

    Who knew that finding ground Cardamom is hard? I finally found some but they were not ground. It's like crunchy potent bites of flavor.
