How To:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grease a cookie sheet.

  2. Blend your flour, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and baking soda thoroughly in a small mixing bowl.

  3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat your butter and white sugar until you get a fluffy consistency.

  5. Blend your two mixtures together thoroughly. 

  6. Scoop heaping spoonfuls into balls on your cookie tray.

  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes. (Place a toothpick in the center of each cookie after baking. If it comes out clean, they are cooked thoroughly.)
