It could just be me, but, I just go crazy over sweet things with spice. Nothing smells as enticing as a kitchen that is permeated with the aroma and goodness of spice. This cookie is soft textured, and almost gingerbread like. The frosting sends it to the top of my list of completely satisfying sweet things. Plan to make these all through the fall and into the December Holidays......If you are good at decorating cookies,.....these would deserve all your expertise!
