    I have to say they were not as I expected as they look cakey in the picture- I added chocolate chips in the center which absolutely made them better than without the chips in center. Used about 5-6 in center and rolled into a ball. I think the chocolate added gooey component which helps the dryness. How did you get them to brown without frying?

    Bake it for about a minute or so less. Comes out nice and cakey that way.

    Flavor is ok but the cookie is very dry. Not what I was expecting.

    The cookies are delicious! The only thing that threw me off was that the dough was quite soft and didn’t come together like normal cookie dough. However, that was not a problem as I could still roll the dough into little balls great recipe!

    I got up at five one morning and surprised my parents and siblings with this delicious breakfast cookie ( to be honest I'm not sure if this is for breakfast, but I told them that's what it was). It's truly amazing.

    Turned out good. The only issue we had was the cinnamon sugar combo, too much cinnamon but we corrected it

    I made a few mistakes like I added 1/4 more sugar. However all my mistakes made it way better.

    It was yummy, but for me, when it was baking it took 25 min. to fully bake. Also, it wasn't as airy as it was shown on the picture.

    It’s easy and the donuts tasted amazing! It’s crispy outside and soft in the middle. To level it up, serve it with Nutella!!

    The kids loved these! Next time, the only thing I’ll do differently is put less cinnamon.

    I didn't rad the part about holding the cinnamon out so I mixed it in. Not bad! Definitely better with milk than plain but could be lighter
    Yummy but the cookies are quite dry.

    Just made these and they are a hit! Will definitely be making these again. I didn't have nutmeg, so I substituted pumpkin spice. So so good!!!
