Submitted by: XNANNY

Introduction

Made for Saint Nicholas Day on December the Sixth. I like to make them a day before so they are done for the day. Made for Saint Nicholas Day on December the Sixth. I like to make them a day before so they are done for the day.

Ingredients

    1c. Butter
    1 egg
    3/4 c. brown sugar
    1 1/4 c. flour with up to 1/4 c. more if needed
    1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ground
    1/4 tsp. cloves, ground
    1/4 c. sliced almonds (optional)

Tips

Do not over bake as they taste very bad then. Light brown is the color of done. You may put some sliced almonds on the cookies before baking if you like them.


Directions

Cream butter then add the egg and sugar and cream more. Sift the flour and spices together before adding to the butter mixture. Mix well and taste to see if more flour is needed, the flour is needed if the dough melts on your tongue very fast. Press the dough our with a ribbon disk on a cookie press. Four inches is about right for these cookies.

Serving Size: makes thin cookies about 60 if not long

Number of Servings: 60
