I always new Christmas was around the corner when MaMa Griffin would bake these cookies. This is one of my favorite cookies.
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
Add – 4 eggs
5 cups sifted flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 to 2 tsp nutmeg (depends on taste – I like nutmeg and use 2)
2 tsp vanilla
Chill dough for at least an hour. Roll out to 1/2 inch and bake at 400 degrees until llight light golden brown. No longer than 8 minutes usually.
You can make them thinner if you like them crispy.
