Prep Time:
Bake: 12 Minutes


  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. 1. Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs; beat until fluffy. Beat in vanilla.
  2. 2. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Beat into butter mixture gradually until combined.
  3. 3. Roll half of dough to 1/4- to 3/8-inch thickness on a heavily floured surface. Brush flour on surface of cookie mold with a pastry brush. Press mold firmly onto flat surface of dough, and then lift straight up. (Re-flour mold for each pressing.) Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. 4. Trim dough around cookies, and place 1 inch apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Let dry at room temperature 24 hours. (If baked immediately, designs will fade as cookie rises.)
  5. 5. Preheat oven to 300°. Bake 12 minutes or until set but not browned. Let cool completely; store in an airtight container.
