This looks like a fabulous recipe! You're getting more and more creative - not only with your recipe ideas, but with their names. I love this one!!


Oh Mr. Cookie Man. A Friday AND a Monday with cookies? You're spoiling us!

I LOVE it!

Thanks, Lorraine and In-Young.


You know I love your cookies, but these for me turned out really strange. I am guessing that I just used the wrong kind of cinnamon extract because they tasted more like the candies red hots than true cinnamon. Is this how they are supposed to taste or are there different kinds of cinnamon extracts out there that can change the flavoring? Actually, I think all I could find was cinnamon flavoring, and this is probably the problem. Just wondering because they didn't taste anything like a cinnamon roll, but rather an ultra-hot, cinnamon-candy flavored thing. I think it was hotter than a fireball candy.

Hi, Laurel. It sounds like the cinnamon flavoring was the culprit. I used McCormick cinnamon extract:

I think switching from the flavoring to the extract should do the trick!


Any suggestions of what I could use as a substitute for butter flavoring?

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi, Laurel. If you don't have butter flavoring on hand or can't find it easily in a store, I think it'll probably be OK if you just skipped that ingredient or replaced it with melted real butter.


Thanks. I will give that a try. The Belgians are just not big on flavorings or extracts.

:-) My pleasure, Laurel!
