    I veganized these by replacing the butter with Earth Balance Buttery Sticks, and then replaced the honey with brown rice syrup. Texture very good, but the cinnamon was a bit overwhelming, so I would eliminate it from the sanding sugar.

    These were surprisingly delicious. They are very sweet, but the combination of flavors is excellent. These were a favorite on my holiday cookie platter.
