For most of my friends, cookies were served during festivals (Eid, Lunar New Year or Christmas) but not in my household. We are serving them regularly as our tea time treat.
I recently bake these Spiced Cookies and my family raved about them because they are unusual and delicious. However this cookies is my to go. Simple, easy and loaded with warm spices.
Would definitely prefer to bake in a smaller portion to maintain freshness but you can easily double up the quantity if needed. I also make use of orange colored sugar instead of white one.
To speed up the process, you can leave the butter on your counter for few hours prior to baking or else use your microwave oven to soften it a little.
Another combination of spices could be added to the dough are nutmeg, cinnamon or mixed spices.
