I made these for Thanksgiving this year and they were very very good! Instead of icing, I just added a bag of white chocolate chips. However, as much as I liked those with chips, I also loved the couple of plain ones that I made at the end. I used a 2T scoop to measure out the cookies and next time I would use a smaller one. It made big domed cookies that were beautiful but it was tricky getting them done enough in the middle since they didn't really spread. For spice, I added 2 t cinnamon, 1/2 t nutmeg and 1/4 t cloves. That made a mildly spiced cookie. Next time I might add another t of cinnamon. (I'm sure ginger would be great, but I can't eat it.) Oh, almost forgot, I also used 1 1/2 sticks of butter and 1/2 c applesauce rather than shortening. Thanks for this wonderful recipe, Peggy!
