Here's what's cooking in our Kitchen! Ed. 2

One of our traditional Christmas cookies.

Rug Cookies 350F 10-12 min.

1 c. butter or marg.
1 ½ c. sugar
1 Tbs. corn syrup
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp. cloves
2 ½c. flour

Cream butter. Add sugar and syrup. Add egg. Mix flour and spices. Add to creamed mixture. Put through a cookie press or roll into balls, roll in sugar and bake. When we use a cookie press, we make the shape of a rug in strips down the cookie sheet. We cut them into desired size as we take them off the sheet. They must be removed from cookie sheet immediately as they will stick badly if allowed to cool.
