Ingredients:

For the Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour, all purpose
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup Crystal Creamery unsalted butter, room temperature

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 300°. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Blend well with a whisk and set aside.
