The author warned that the cookie dough might be dry and mine really was. I had to add nearly a cup and a half of water to make it remotely workable. I thought at first I did something wrong, but as I reread through the recipe now, the amount of cinnamon listed (3 tbsp) seems really high. The author reduced the recipe from one for 12 dozen, so I have to wonder if the cinnamon amount didn't get properly shrunk. My cookies look way darker than the recipe photos on the original post.
The final baked version I ended up with turned out well-flavored (and very cinnamony), but also very dry. I opted to take the recipe author's suggestion and make some rice pudding to go with the cookies, which made for a delicious pairing. All in all, I'll give another version of the recipe a try before I pass a final verdict.
