      I made these cookies in November. I changed it up just a bit. I LOVE cinnamon, but all we could tastes was cinnamon. So when I made these the second time , I omitted the cinnamon in the cookie dough, added about a tablespoon more of apple butter and about 1/4 cup more flour. This way we could really taste the apple butter. These are a keeper !
