    CoolMonday's Note:

    This is a great recipe for variety (English, French, Greek, German, Finnish, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Turkish, Mexican. I have split them two to a recipe but if you want them all, there are 5 of them or 10 recipes. They are made from one basic cooke dough. I think some of them may be posted individually but at Christmas I make the entire variety. Each batch of basic dough makes a batch of two of the cookies with the ingredients I have listed. Time does not include chilling time.

      These clove cookies were both my mother and my little sisters favorites. They have requested the recipe. The Love cookies taste like a spicy gingerbread with the kick of the lemon glaze...different and wonderful.
