    PBShakes's Note:

    Found this recipe in a sunset magazine. I made them for my Christmas packages. I am glad I gave most of them away because otherwise I'd have eaten all of them within hours! Lot's of praise has been received for my baking skills this year from the recipients. Soft texture, spicy flavor and yummy frosting.

      These are fabulous. I didn't have any nutmeg, but otherwise, I followed the recipe. I didn't use the frosting because they were just so good as is.

      These cookies are SO delicious. I highly recommend making them as written! The spices are proportioned perfectly. The second time I made them I used slightly less lemon juice in the frosting and prefered them that way, especially when kids are getting into the cookie jar! My cookies looked exactly like the picture and if this picture doesn't make you hungry for a nice, soft, not too overly spiced cookie, then nothing will! These are a perfect bake sale or for a cookie exchange. Thanks for sharing!
