These are great cookies. I made with and without nutmeg on top. I made the size specified.

You had me at nutmeg. Love the stuff. My mother made a similar cookie one Christmas and I guess I was the only one who liked them because they never made another appearance. This will be on my cookie try this year. (I only made 1/2 recipe to test them, and they passed the test! Nice and buttery and soft.

Yummy cookies. The recipe didn't state the oven temp, so I baked them at 350F and found that I only needed to bake them for about 18 minutes. Nice flavor and my family also enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing, Teresa.
