A great cookie filled with the flavor of spices we know and love. Perfect for dunking in hot tea.


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground green cardamon
  • Tubinado sugar for coating


  1. Cream together the butter and sugar for 4 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
  3. When the butter and sugar are creamed, add the egg and extracts and mix thoroughly.
  4. Slowly and carefully add the dry ingredients. Mix until blended.
  5. Form the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in turbinado sugar.
  6. Refrigerate on a parchment-lined or nonstick cookie sheet for 30 minutes.
