"A mild spice cookie that I like to make for Christmas. The dough works best when chilled (at least 2 hours) so plan accordingly. This recipe was shared with me many years ago by a former co-worker, Amy Eckrote. "

Step 1

In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Add egg and mix well.

Step 2

In another mixing bowl sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.

Step 3

Combine flour and butter mixtures. Dough will be crumbly, not unlike pie dough.

Step 4

You may proceed with the recipe at this point but the dough works best when chilled at least 2 hours.

Step 5

Preheat oven to 350F (180C and gas mark 4).

Step 6

On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into cookies with your favorite cookie cutters. Place on parchment lined or lightly greased cookie sheets; sprinkle each cookie with granulated sugar.

Step 7

Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a cookie rack. Enjoy!

Step 8

Cookies keep in a tightly covered container for about one week.
