    Chalko's Note:

    This is the recie my grandmother gave to me. I have no idea where she got it from. But they are SO yummy! They are crisp and chewy and full of flavor. I usually buy the cloves whole and crush them myself.

      These are wonderful cookies Chalko. Gram's recipe certainly rocks. We loved these delicious, sweet, spicy, crisp, tender, chewy cookies. I used freshly ground cloves and ginger, that I ground myself. What a subtle flavor it imparted, so much nicer, than store bought. Thanks so much for sharing, my dh is very happy tonight.
