What a nice combination of spices this cookie has! It's between shortbread and gingersnaps. Roll into shooting stars, hearts, or flowers and decorte with Sugar Cookie Icing Sugar Cookie Icing. Note prep time does not include time to roll and cut out the dough.

I've made these a few times this year using a 50/50 mix of cinnamon and nutmeg in place of the cloves (because I never have any) and really liked them. So, I decided to give them to everyone for Christmas. On Christmas Eve, when I was making eight dozen of them, I was thanking my past self for choosing to make these cookies this year because they are so easy to make. Thank you so much for a delicious cookie recipe that made my Christmas cookie baking easy!
