Dorie, you had me at “Nutella…!” Everyone should bake these cookies for the holidays – their wonderful spicy aroma is as pungent and holiday-infused as mulling spices. They are so subtle and yet so flavorful at the same time. I was a little concerned about liking them because I thought they would taste like gingerbread cookies which I don’t care for, but they don’t at all. They have the distinction of being crisp on the edges and chewy inside.
I followed the Bonne Idee and filled them with Nutella – chocolate, cinnamon, and brown sugar – what could be better? I’m taking them to my friends at work tomorrow for our ladies holiday luncheon.
I wonder what it would be like to stand in the middle of a cinnamon tree grove… I found these cookies really easy to make, and will certainly make them again – maybe I’ll stick a batch in the oven just before our realtor shows our other home!
