Bear N Mom Recipes - Cookies - Christmas Spice Cookies
This cookie is a traditional cookie for the Christmas season and can be made a few weeks in advance and stored in an airtight container.
I lost this recipe that my Mom made every year on the griddle. I was so surprised that the taste of this cookie is exactly like my Mom's cookies. Although, my Mom cooked this cookie a little differently than what this recipe instructs you to do, I can assure you are going to crave this cookie as a tradition just like I did. I'm thinking that this recipe was handed down because my Mom's griddle had a handle for cooking over an open fire such as would have been used in a hearth.
- 3/4 pound butter (3 sticks of margarine can be used)
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 pound light brown sugar
