DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Position rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and beat until incorporated. Beat in the orange zest and corn syrup.
  • Add the dry ingredients in two two batches, beating until the dough is well mixed.
  • With your hands shape the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic, and chill for an hour.
  • On a lightly floured board, roll out the dough 1/4 inch thick, if you like a thicker cookie then roll out thicker and adjust your cooking time. With a floured cookie cutter of your choice, cut out cookies and place them 1 1/2 inches apart on the cookie sheets. If you wish, sprinkle with crystal sugar.
  • Reroll the scrapes only one time, or the dough will become tough. The more you handle the dough, the tougher it will get.
  • Bake the cookies for 12 minutes, turning the cookie sheets halfway through the baking time.
  • Cool the cookies on the sheet, set on racks. Store in airtight containers.
  • The size of your cookie cutter will determine how many cookies you end up with.
