Loved them

I really liked these. Over the weekend, it was rainy--stormy, etc., so I put in a good old mystery "who dun it", made a batch of these, and had myself a wonderful time!

Disappearing Cookies

I make cookies every week for my husband to take to work for the people in the office. And though I get all my cookie recipes from, these went the fastest! They are soft and the tea makes them similar to ginger snaps in flavor. Tealicious!

The greatest proof of a recipe is to let my grandchildren try it. They rate this as their favorite cookie so far. Thank you for this recipe.

My daughter and I made them and they tasted great, I already had a recipe, but this one was better. She enjoyed making them and had even more fun eating the dough as she made them. The whole family was looking forward to them at chirstmas time and now that they are her I am sure they wont last long. I will have to make these again for Santa...........

I decided to make these cookies for my husband who had never had snicker doodles but likes sugar cookies. He and his friends enjoyed them. For such an easy recipe the results were impressive. I will be making this recipe again.
