Directions

  1. Sift together the sugar, flour, baking powder, and cloves. Make a well in the sugar mixture, and pour the eggs into the well. Work the eggs into the mixture, first with a fork, then with your hands, until you have a smooth dough.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten each cookie with the bottom of a glass. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rest overnight. Cookies will spread.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Remove cookies from pan immediately as they come out of the oven or they will stick. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Just made a batch tonight! They taste EXACTLY like I remember...We weren't patient enough for them to cool...they were GONE before they became hard. LoL~ We added a light white glazing of confectioners sugar and lemon juice for a slightly different twist. THANK YOU for posting this recipe! :)

These came extremely hard. I may have done something wrong, but I am not sure what since I followed the recipe exactly.

Made the recipe exactly, and the mix was too dry. Didn't really rise and spread as mentioned in the recipe. Cloves flavour is a bit odd - Won't be making this recipe again.
