On a cold winter evening, buttery homemade nutmeg cookies and a cup of fresh coffee or hot cocoa will warm your heart and soul.

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3-1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 whole nutmeg, freshly grated
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 375°

Sift the flour with baking powder. Sift the flour again with the nutmeg and salt. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. By hand, thoroughly incorporate eggs. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture; mix well. Add the vanilla; stir to blend.

Roll dough onto floured board and cut out shapes using your favorite cookie cutters. Place on un-greased cookie sheets and bake for 10 – 12 minutes, until lightly browned.

Store in a tightly sealed tin.

Yield: 45 – 50 cookies.
