Recipe by libann

These are a much better version of the old recipe that made a dry cookie,these are never dry and a big hit. Our famil has been making them this way for years. They are also very easy

These turned out nicely. I cut down on the cloves, and used 1/2 bag of chocolate chips instead of the nuts. I also sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar and pressed with the bottom of a drinking glass to give them a flatter outcome (just personal preference!!) Very quick and yummy!
