Cream together 1 stick of butter and 3/4 cup white granulated or brown sugar in a large bowl
Add two eggs
In another bowl, mix 3 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 teaspoons nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon cloves
Add flour gradually to sugar mixture to form dough
HINT: Recipe said to "add a little water" if dough seemed too dry.......how much is "a little"? I simply wet my hands and worked it a few times and no more dryness.
Roll out 1/4 inch thick
Cut with a 3-inch cutter
Bake 350 degrees 12-15 minutes (watch carefully, mine were done in 10!)
I think I would ice these next time. Maybe use less nutmeg. Perfect with the hot beverage of your choice, or a cold glass of milk.
Edited it add another way to enjoy them
A dixie size cup (may not need to use all of it) resulted in this ice cream sandwich
