I was going to sit this one out. Mainly because that’s just what I always tell myself these days, even if I wind up doing it in the end. My other reason for sitting out was that it called for ground nuts, and that would require me to clean the coffee grinder. THEN, a few hours ago I came up with the idea of using ground flax seeds because I always have some on hand.
It worked and the cookies are yummy. Plus they were so simple. The dough came together within minutes and although Dorie says to chill it for 2 hours, I was impatient and only waited 15 minutes. I had no problems whatsoever. I obviously chose to do the sandwich version. My mom just gave me some homemade strawberry jam on Sunday and she’ll be happy to know it was put to good use.
Overall, very good cookies but I doubt I make them again. I’m not big on spiced cookies but my little man loves them! Then again, he’s never been one to turn down a cookie.
