    Yummy! I used this as a base and tweaked it a bit with the addition of 1tsp cinnamon, 1tsp ginger and orange oil. I swapped out the brown rice syrup for molasses. I found the cookie dough to be far too sweet, so I added an extra 50% liquid and flour to make it less so. The cookies turned out great.

    Pretty good recipe, but be warned that for me, when I hit the guided recipe start, the measurements for the ingredients were no longer correct. Make sure you use the measurements from the initial ingredient list

    Add slightly more oil and milk and roll in a cinnamon-sugar mixture before baking! My coworkers were begging me to make more.

    Very good but they weren't very chewy. I think I over cooked them. Although they did have an interesting taste and should have some spices. It is a blank canvas ready for paint or in this case flavor.

    Excellent choice for sensitive allergies. Tastes a bit different from normal sugar cookies and would probably benefit from a few tweaks but they are great nonetheless.

    The dough didn't get as thick as mentioned.. I had to add more flour and then eventually used my hands instead of the scoop.. finally came out decent !!

    Def bookmarking this. Its late in the evening and I was craving something sweet. I had to improvise as I have a severe almond allergy I realized I had no vanilla extract halfway in so doubled up on the brown rice syrup, my coconut milk has hints of vanilla so I crossed my fingers and poured that in as well lol. I added cinnamon, nutmeg, and a few shakes of ginger as well. Once they came out the oven I sprinkled some Sugar in the Raw crystals on top.... Super good.

    Surprisingly good, definitely will make them again. A little crumbly when they first came out of the oven, but when they cool they stay together better.

    I cut the sugar in half because I made these for my little kiddos. They were just sweet enough but they ended up being quite crumbly. **Edit** I made these again, this time with 3/4 cup of sugar and the consistency completely changed. They spread quite a bit and turned out chewy.
