I love spice cookies and these fit the bill perfectly.

Top Review by Jadelabyrinth

I got 31 large cookies from this recipe using a #40 cookie scoop. They spread a bit, but not too bad really. I felt like There was not enough nutmeg flavor though. But I grew up on a Christmas cookie that had quite a bit of nutmeg in it. I thought I would try these, and they are ok, but I will stick with my family's recipe.
