Autumn cuisine usually boasts 'Old World' flavors such as cloves, walnuts, and cranberries. These are flavours one might have envisioned a puritan family enjoying fresh off the Mayflower. At first bite, the robust ‘kick' and bold expression of these little treats will be sure to impress and delight, and possibly even allow one to reminisce on the joys of autumn, from the fading leaves to the memories of a Thanksgiving past.
These were so delicious! I did make a couple changes because dumbo me forgot the lemon at the store....so I used an orange. Very very good! It would be awesome with the lemon too! They're puffy and moist, which I don't normally like in cookies but these had alot of flavor. I drizzled a powdered sugar glaze on top with a touch of almond extract. Yummy! - 04 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
the flavor on these were great, but they turned out to be very sticky and dense...the moisture in them seemed to multiply! Perhaps next time i won't make the glaze for them and just leave them plain... - 11 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great bold flavor. Because the cookies are so fluffy and don't really brown, I think next time I'll bake the batter in a loaf pan - it tastes more like yummy bread. - 05 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
