Sugar and Spice Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

These have been a favorite since I was a little girl. I remember eating these in front of the TV watching "Romper room". The dough is quite soft, so I always put it in the fridge between baking batches for easier rolling.

oh.. I can see why you refrigerate them before baking... but these are a great tasting spice cookie. I baked them for my mom's Bible study class meeting and they all enjoyed them. Thanks for the recipe.
