I received these yummy cookies in a Cookie Swap. The lady that made them said she doubled the amount of spices in the recipe. They were great

The most delicious cookies I have ever made! EVERYONE I've made them for wants the recipe and my Christmas cookie exchange has told me I have to make these cookies every year! If you want them to be a little crispier, like my husband, just bake them a little longer. My first taste on a Christmas Craft tour lead me to the recipe almost 10 years ago. I'm surprised no one has written a review!
