DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In mixer, cream together butter and one cup of the sugar until fully incorporated. Add egg yolks, one at a time, until mixture is smooth. Stir in flour and baking soda a little at a time until a soft dough forms.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/3" thick. Cut into 2 inch rounds and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Place in oven and cook for 20 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.
  • While the cookies are baking, add the remaining sugar and water to a small saucepan and cook over medium to medium-high heat for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the syrup spins a long thread. Remove from heat. Season with vanilla and cloves to taste.
  • When cookies are done, remove from oven and place on rack to cool slightly. Pour hot syrup over cookies. Serve at room temperature.
