Spice Drop Cookies from What I Made for Dinner

Use a spice or cleaned coffee grinder to grind the following spices together:

10 allspice berries

5 cardamom pods

5 black peppercorns

1 clove

1 star anise

1 small nutmeg

Sift together spice mixture with:

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Cream together:

12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter

1 cup sugar

Add:

1 large egg

1/3 cup molasses

Combine dry ingredients with butter mixture. Drop tablespoon-sized bits of dough on cookie sheet and bake 8-11 minutes. If you bake until crisp they will still have some chewiness to them. Marvelous.
