Made these for the kids to decorate-they loved them and were very inventive in decorating. The cookies were sturdy enough for small hands to work with them. I added ginger and cinnamon about 1 tsp each and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and they were good. Not died and gone to heaven good; but good enough to decorate and eat! Would play with the recipe before making again.
