These cookies are delicious! I just finished baking another batch because my boyfriend LOVES them, and I needed more for my cookie gifts! 5 stars

I made these cookies for the first time this year. They were easy to make and my grandsons loved them. I like how the butterscotch flavor balances against the ginger/cinnamon spices. I am making another batch today because I know that little children visiting us over the holidays will find these cookies their favorite. One suggestion I make is to put the dough between floured parchment paper when rolling. The cutout cookies will lift easier from that surface than from a floured counter top. Thank you for sharing this recipe. 5 stars
