Ease of Preparation: Moderate
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 16-20 min
Servings: 4 dozen

1 cup melted butter
1 cup blue agave syrup (or honey)
2  eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons Simply Organic Mulling Spice
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
 plastic wrap

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, agave, eggs and vanilla together.

In a spice or coffee grinder, grind Mulling Spice to a coarse powder. Sift out any larger pieces and then whisk powder into cream mixture. Slowly add flour and baking powder, stirring constantly until completely blended.

Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each section into a cylinder approximately 10 inches in length by 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate a minimum of 1 hour.

When ready, preheat oven to 350 degrees, slice dough into 1/4-inch rounds, place on cookie sheet and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden on top. Makes 4 dozen cookies.

Chef Suggestions

Dough can be frozen and saved to be used at a later time. Thaw 15 to 20 minutes before slicing and baking.

Frost as you would sugar cookies for a sweeter treat.
