    These cookies baked up just great,soft but chewy. We found them very sweet which we are not used to, otherwise if you like sweet these would be 5 star.

    These cookies are delicious, and pretty. They have the perfect balance of spices, one does not overpower the other, and the sparkly sugar on top is so attractive. I strongly recommend following Bev's direction to chill the dough for several hours. I covered mine with plastic wrap and let chill overnite. I used my smallest Pampered Chef scoop (1 Tbs size I think), and put 12 to a pan. Mine took about 12 minutes to bake. I also found that letting the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to cooling racks worked well. Thanks for sharing Bev, these cookies are a big hit with the family.
