Recipe Comments & Reviews

The cinnamon taste is strong. Brought them to the teachers, and they adored them. I often make the peppermint double dips, look the same, and those are well loved too. but I make balls, and flatten them, instead of slicing the refrigerated logs of dough. i've been making this double dipped recipe for 9 years now.
I started baking cookies about 6 years ago around the holidays. Every year since then friends and family always make sure that these cookies are on my list to make again!
Have been making this cookie for probably 10 years, and it may be one of the best, if not the best cookie on the site! Found it in a LOL cookbook years ago.
