These little bite sized cookies are perfect with a cup of your favorite tea. They are not too soft or crunchy and they almost melt in your mouth.These cookies come together very quickly and after you put then in the oven you will thank me as their spiced aroma fills your house.
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
Preheat oven to 350°F. Using an electric mixer beat butter together with granulated sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until well blended. In small bowl mix flour, spices and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until combined.
Roll dough into teaspoon size balls and place on baking sheet about an inch apart. I recommend using an actual measuring spoon for this to get perfect bite sized cookies. Bake for 16-20 minutes and cookies are lightly golden. Remove cookies from oven and let sit on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes then lightly roll warm cookies in powdered sugar and set on wire rack to finish cooling.
Enjoy and as always let me know what you think!
