Sugar & Spice Makes everything Nice Cookies!


Fall makes me think of spices, fruits, pumpkins, colors & crisp days. Today had me thinking of sugary & yet spicy things. I almost made Ginger Snaps but I was wanting something a little different. This is the result of my playing in kitchen! 

2 Sticks of Butter Melted ( 1/2 pound)
1 & 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar ( I used Dark Brown, Light Brown would be ok too)
1 Cup Granulated Sugar 
Beat that together until combined. It will be wet, heavy & sugary & that is what you want!
Beat into that 4 Large Eggs & 2 TSP Vanilla.

Mix Together all the dry ingredients listed below:
5 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Salt
1 TBS + 1 TSP Baking Powder
2 TSP Cinnamon
2 TSP Ginger
1/2 TSP Cloves
Beat these into the butter mixture using a mixer as long as you can then finish adding the rest stirring with a heavy spoon until everything is incorporated. Spray your baking sheets & preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough into balls using 1 heaping TBS of the dough. Dip the tops of the cookie dough balls into sanding sugar ( I used white sanding sugar) place on sheets sanding sugar side up & bake for about 12 minutes. Bottoms of cookies should be nicely browned & tops of cookies puffy & crackled! Makes 4 dozen 3 inch across cookies!These are soft & slightly chewy nicely sweet with a kick from the spices! If you want HEAT with these increase ginger amount to 4 tsp & even add a dash or 2 of pepper but I like mine sweeter than I do hot!
