This is an old recipe and posted in request. They make a lot of cookies and they are really good. I leave out the cardamom or nutmeg. I like mine all sugar.

I found the cookie a little to biscuit like for my taste and not really sweet. So, on my second batch I increased the sugar to 2 cups and they turned out like I thought sugar cookies should taste. Excellent recipe. Thank you for posting it.
