Overall great cookies. I didn't have a mixer so I definitely exerted more energy mixing the ingredients. In addition to what was listed, I added in 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. The cookies were also pretty hard to cut but I find sticking them in the freezer for about twenty minutes really helps. Also, I sectioned off the log into 4 equal chunks (15 cookies each chunk) which also seemed to help with getting equal sized cookies. Be warned, these are very difficult the have just one of!
