    Goat mom's Note:

    When my daughter was young I was blessed to be an at home Mom. I would bake dozens of different types of cookies for the Christmas holiday. Now that I work fulltime each family member gets to chose a couple cookies for me to bake. This past year Sarah made these for all to enjoy. We do not double this recipe as the dough is stiff and its very hard to stir in larger batches.

      I make this same cookie except I use 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves and 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger along with the cinnamon, and I do not use allspice. I used the spices in your recipe this time and they were equally delicious. This is a beautiful cookie - someone thought I got them from a bakery! Wouldn't be Christmas without them.

      These cookies are chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The was so amazing while I was baking them. Our entire house smelled good. The cookies were best right out of the oven while still warm. When I rolled them in sugar I took between 8 Tablespoons of sugar with 1 teaspoon of ground ginger and mixed that up really well then rolled the dough in that mixture. You could taste a hint of ginger but it wasn't over powering. I also didn't have all-spice but I looked on the internet to see how to make all-spice so what I came up with was equal parts ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and ground clove. I don't think however the small changes I made changed the outcome. These were great cookies. Made for Spring '14 PAC
