How to Make Gewurz-Knusperchen - Spice Christmas Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter and sugar together until well blended. Add egg and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Gradually add dry mixture to the butter mixture.
  4. Roll out dough on a floured board to 1/8" thickness. Cut with your favorite shaped cookie cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 350 just until edges start to turn a slight brown.
  6. Cool and decorate as desired.
