    Terrific cookie. Just served them for Easter dessert. Didn't chill them and they were still great. Added a drizzle of icing sugar, cinnamon and water mixture, just to add some flare.

    These were very yummy! I followed the suggestion on not chilling and it worked well for me too. I used all white whole wheat flour. We gobbled them up so fast that I don't know how they are the next day. If they don't stay soft I may substitute a little honey instead of sugar. I'll be writing this recipe out to use often.

    Very easy to make. I loved the consistancy, they were cakey without being dry, nice feel. I didn't chill the batter like the recipe suggested, but they turned out fine. All in all a great dessert, I will definately make them again.

    These cookies were awesome! Quick and simple recipe. Easy on the eyes, and easier on the belly. More of a coffee cake texture than a cookie. Great flavor, love the cinnamon sugar! I used Splenda, and didn't even miss the sugar. Wouldn't change a thing.
