This recipe is absolutely delicious and a family-favourite. We make the jars up for family and friends at Christmas and bake a batch or two for ourselves along the way... One jar makes lots and lots of cookies! 5 stars

Absolutely fabulous - kids made this recipe at school for a Christmas fundraiser. The cookies were FAB!!! The Quaker recipe used to be my favorite, but now these are. Really, really good!! Very buttery, and the hint of 'spice' is amazingly delish. 5 stars
