These are so perfect and yummy--my mom makes these every Christmas and every Christmas I help and eat about half the delicious dough raw!! lol These couldn't be easier, either. All the spices mix together to give you the perfect dough. Try these, you won't be disappointed.

Good flavor, good smell, and pretty easy to make. I thought they were too dry, so I may use a bit less flour next time. I also will bake them a minute or two less than I did this time, because I would like them softer than they came out. I do think they got better a couple of days after they were baked.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together and cut in the butter.
  2. Add the wet ingredients. Knead a few seconds.
  3. Roll out on a lightly floured surface pretty thick, about 1/4 inch. Cut out cookies and bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes.
  4. *NOTE: Cookies should be baked but still soft and chewy, not crisp. Serving size is approximate.
