Martha's Speculaas Cookies

One of the most popular Dutch sweet treats is a spice-filled, crunchy cookie called speculaas, or "mirror," since the cookies reflect the image of the molds from which they're shaped.

    tThere are two Martha websites with this recipe. One calls for the addition of white sugar, the other does not. I made the recipe with brown AND white sugar. I feel this is an error in the recipe. I did get the dough to hold together. The flavor is to die for, but it is more like a candy than a cookie. I e-mailed Martha's customer service, asking which recipe is the correct one. I have feel the one WITHOUT WHITE SUGAR to be correct. But after two attempts to get a reply from customer service I will NOT be trying the alternative recipe.
