These can be used for cookie butter or just cookies. I love the flavor.
1/2 c butter
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp milk
1 1/3 c flour
3 tbsp finely chopped blanched almonds (optional)
Beat the butter in a mixing bowl on med or high for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg, cloves and salt. Beat until combined. Beat in egg yolk and milk. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Divide dough in half , cover and chill about 1 hour or until it’s easy to handle.
Roll dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8″ thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Cook on lightly greased (or parchment covered) cookie sheet 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.
