These cookies are a cross between cake and cookie. They are fluffy and moist like a cake, but small and shaped like a cookie. I make them every year for the holidays. Hope you enjoy! —Megan Mitchell

I've been baking your recipe for 3 years now so after baking my first batch this season and the cookies reminding me how much we love them I thought I should finally say thank you for the recipe! I live at 8500 feet so I've had to tweak the sugar and baking powder a tick, but other wise I use it as written. It is my family's favorite cookie for fall and winter. We love these ultra soft pillowy cookies. Thank you for sharing.
