From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.  These
cookies remind me of graham crackers. Cinnamon,
nutmeg & allspice flavor the dough. My boys prefer
them without frosting.
Cream until light & creamy (~3minutes):
1/2 c butter
1/4 c crisco
1 1/2 c packed brown sugar
Add:
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
Add:
3 c flour
1/2 tsp b. soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp b. powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
Mix until blended.
Chill dough.
Roll dough on a floured surface.
Cut with cookie cutters.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake @ 350 for 12 minutes or lightly browned.
Cool on a wire rack.
Frosting optional.
"Santa, just so you know, I put a trap on your
cookies so daddy will not eat them this year."
Spice Cutout Cookies
This dough holds it's shape well. Perfect for textured cookies like
these.
Take a small chunk of
dough. Flour surface.  
Cover dough with
saran wrap. Roll flat.
Cookie cutters with
little nooks need to be
tapped in flour before
each cut to prevent
sticking.
Cut cookies close
together.  Scraps will
be re- rolled.  You
want to minimize
re-rolling dough.
This tool is great for
transferring cookies to
the cookie sheet
without the shape
becoming deformed.
I like my cut outs this
thick.  Thinner cookies
cook quicker.  Thicker
& bigger cookies take
longer.
Gather scraps & add a
big spoonful of dough.
Flour surface. Cover
with saran.  Roll flat.
