I can't honestly rememeber. Most likely I got them out of a magazine long ago, but which one and how close the current recipe is to the original I couldn't say. I've been making them since I was maybe 13 or 14.

Well....wherever they came from, you certainly have spread a great recipe around.  Thanks......I made a double recipe yesterday.  The first two pans (24 on each pan) I made I used the dough right after I made it.  The second two pans, I chilled the dough first before dropping by a tiny size melon scooper.  Second pans came out more uniform.

They yielded 48 cookies.

I first tasted them warm and just didn't see what all the buzz was about.  Then I tasted them cooled and liked them a little better.  Iced them and let the icing dry and tried them again.....BINGO!!  What a great burst of flavor.  My sister was visiting and liked them better un-iced!!


I'm trying not to eat them so I'll have some to share!!  Thanks again...they are a real winner!!  One thing though.....I can't taste the cinnamon in them.  Maybe next time I'll add a little more!

I'm so glad you're enjoying them. I prefer them iced too, even though I'm not generally a fan of powdered sugar icings.

You shoudl definitely be able to taste the cinnamon. Though it shouldn't be an overpowering flavor, it should be there. If it's not coming through definitely add a bit more.
