    I needed a sweet in a hurry and this was great. I didn't use all the cinnamon sugar topping and it was still very sweet. Quick and easy.  -  08 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These cookies are tasty! All I had was a sheet pan so I used that.(Dimensions are a little different.) I brushed the egg white on with a marinating brush and used a sifter to sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top evenly. My three year old says these cookies are yummy.  -  01 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These cookies turned out really well, though a little short. Fairly easy to make, but I had some difficulty with smoothing out the dough into the jelly roll pan. But otherwise, they looked and tasted great! Also thanks for using my picture! =]  -  27 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
