  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Gradually add flour mixture, with mixer on low speed, just until combined, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Divide dough into quarters.

  4. Bake 9 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes on wire rack. Remove from baking sheets and cool completely. Decorate, if desired, with Decorating Icing*.

*Decorating Icing: Beat 1 box (16 oz.) confectioners sugar, 2 Tbsp. dried egg white powder and 6 Tbsp. water in medium bowl with electric mixer until smooth, about 3 mintues. Store in container in refrigerator up to 2 days.
