    These cookies were way too salty. When I was making them, I was thinking that 2 tsp of salt seemed way too much for a cookie recipe, but with the great reviews, I just went with it. But they did come out very salty, to the point that you could actually taste the salt granules. I think by reducing the salt to 1 tsp, or even 1/2 tsp, the cookies would be very good.

    These indeed are outstanding cookies! I reduced the salt to 1/2 teaspoon, and I cut back on the cloves as well. They are delicious and won't last long around here! Thanks for a great recipe.
