I've been over this recipe several times and I'm sure I followed it to the letter.. but my cookies turned out AWFUL. They spread out to a cardboard-thin layer that covered the entire baking tray. I scraped them off and now they're cooled they're sort of like brandy snaps. The taste is fine, but don't make these expecting them to look anything like cookies! - 12 Dec 2011
OMG! These are delicious! Heavily spiced, and they get better with age. Don't roll in sugar. I did half rolled in sugar and half not, and everyone liked the unrolled ones better. The sugar masks the gingerbread taste, and they are plenty sweet without it. A keeper, especially for fall and the winter holidays. YUM! - 29 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Tried these out even though it sounds like a Christmas cookie. Brought them to work and two batches were devoured. I would suggest to nix the last step of rolling dough in more sugar, as this cookie is sweet enough to kill a diabetic. Next time I make it, I will cut some sugar. They were pretty tasty. - 29 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
