  3. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and insert a clove into each one. Place on an unprepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven. Roll the cookies in powdered sugar while they are still hot. Remove cloves before serving or warn guests to remove them.

I followed the directions only to end up with a rather bland cookie. They were also quite dry and tended to fall apart when I picked them up. Only a few were eaten and I had to throw the rest away.

The only thing tht I do different is add 7 tbls of conf. sugar and 7 tbls of water, that way the don't fall apart. I also omit the nuts and cloves. After they cool good I put conf. sugar in a bag and put cokkies in the bag so tney are covered in the sugar!! Awesome!

my grandmother used to make these. But it was done with 1 lb butter as base. easier to measure.

This one is the best one that I have found on this site. I used it in my food processor and it came out well blended; the butter melted well, and baked uniform. But the form on this site would not let me add the stars to rate it.
