  • Heat oven to 350ºF. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 10 to 12 min. or just until centers are set and edges are lightly browned. Let stand on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Mix powdered sugar and milk until blended; spread onto cookies. Let stand until frosting is firm.

Special Equipment Needed

Note from the Kraft Kitchens

Thank you for your feedback. We retested this recipe and reduced the amount of nutmeg. Please use the amount listed in this updated recipe, rather than the amount of nutmeg shown in the video. We hope you enjoy our updated version of these delicious cookies.

Use Butter in Cookie Recipes

For best results, do not substitute margarine for the butter in cookie recipes as it will cause the dough to spread excessively on the baking sheet as the cookies bake.

Special Extra

Tint frosting with food coloring before spreading onto cooled cookies. For added color, immediately sprinkle with colored sugar; let stand until frosting is firm.
