Too Salty..., Member caitlyn.r

I find this recipe calls for way too much salt. Next time I will cut the salt by at least half. I also think the baking soda could be reduced to 1 tsp. I added some cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg to add a little more which made them very yummy. Overall, a good recipe :)
