Just read the recipe. It tells you how much of everything to use. The exact amount of spices is listed in the ingredient list. For Spice Cookies: Beat 2 Tbsp. sugar, ginger, cinnamon and allspice into full batch of Sugar Cookie dough. For Lemon Cookies: Beat lemon zest into full batch of Sugar Cookie dough. For Chocolate Cookies: Follow Step 1, but add cocoa powder after beating in eggs and then add only 2 2/3 cups flour.

sounds great and fine idea but has anyone actually MADE these yet??i will try but not sure how soon.

I'm sure they'll post a correction shortly. My guess if, if they reduced the flour by one cup, that the cocoa would be 1 cup. I think the lemon zest would be up to taste. For the full recipe, I'd guess the zest of 1 or 2 lemons, depending on taste. I love versatile recipes! This sounds like a good one for a base for a lemon tart too.

need the amount of ingredients to make the spice, lemon and chocolate versions as I am not into GUESSING amounts if I am using a recipe

It sounded like a great idea to make four different kinds of cookies from one base, but without amounts for the lemon peel or cocoa, I wouldn't attempt to make them.

I think that cooking is not an exact science, so when I read a new recipe, I change some ingredients to suit my taste. I have made these cookies and they are fantastic! They were such a success among my family members! Thank you!
