Here's a fantastic cookie recipe for the holidays and it's fun for your kids to help make as well.
1 C butter at room temperature
2 1/2 C flour
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Prehead the oven to 350.
Cream the butter and sugar, then beat in the eggs.
Mix together the spices and flour, then combine that with the butter & sugar and mix well.
Separate the dough into 6 balls, and this is where the kids can help. Using your hand, on a lightly floured surface, roll out each ball into a rope that is approximately 1/2" thick. Cut each rope into 1/2" pieces and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool for several minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Not only are these delicious, but your house will smell heavenly from the spices.
