Emily has told me about these cookies a few times now, and I don't know...I just never really got around to making them.
Boy was I missing out!
I made some this last holiday season, and we LOVED them!
They are such a great cookie for the holiday season due to the warm cinnamon and nutmeg in them, but it would be a shame to only make them then.
These Sugar and Spice Bark cookies are a great texture--soft with some structure--and less sweet than the traditional cookie, which I found appealing. Of course, I really enjoyed dunking them in my hot chocolate, which completely negates any health benefits of having less sugar, but whatever. They were even perfect for that! While a lot of cookies would be overwhelmingly sweet once dunked in your hot cocoa, these were perfection. :)
So, they have the perfect texture, a subtle nice sweetness, a warm spiciness and they are just plain adorable! Sprinkled with coarse sugar and cinnamon and engraved with elegant wavy fork marks, what's not to love about them?
Many thanks for the folks over at Better Homes and Gardens for once again making such wonderful cookies. :)
