Baking Time- Spice Cutout Cookies

This is a generous recipe, you will have two good size rounds of dough to roll out.

Love to pull out the antique cookie cutters for the cookies and then use them for display for the season.

The scent of these baking is just wonderful !!!

The old trees and squirrels are my favorites.

Roll Out Spice Cookies

4 cups flour
1  1/2 t cinnamon
1 t ginger
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t salt
1/4 t allspice
1/4 t cloves

1  1/2 cups butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla

Sift flour and spices together and set aside.  Cream butter, add sugar, egg and vanilla and beat until
fluffy.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  Divide dough into two rounds, press flat and refrigerate for 
at least one hour.  Roll out on a floured surface to 1/4" thickness and cut with cookie cutters.
Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.  Frost with a light glaze and decorate if desired.
