I just made a batch of these "frugal" cookies. Half, just like the recipe, the other half
I added a little cinnamon. I liked them better, but both were tasty. Next time i'll try allspice and cloves.
I might add that in order to get 18 cookies out of this recipe you'll have to drop them by teaspoon.


I got 13 cookies using a tablespoon.

You just can't get easier than this, Vi, and using cinnamon sounds yummy! I wonder if these would taste good using a little extract flavor of choice?

Thumbs up :-)
