    These are wonderful, I will say I made them into a bar cookie instead, I just spread the dough in a pan and baked it for about 35 minutes. Delicious! - 11/25/09

    They turned out delicious. I ate one straight from the oven with the chocolate chips melted. It was very delicate, as in not too hard or not too chewy, in other words just right. - 10/25/09

    These were really good, even though i made them without the chocolate chips (trying to avoid sugar)! i also didn't have any clove but the nutmeg and cinnamon were plenty spicy. Will make again. - 1/6/09
