These delicious cookies are perfect for holiday entertaining. Make sure to save a batch for late-night visitors bearing gifts on Christmas Eve.

Ingredients:

 

1 cup butter

1 ½ tablespoons finely grated orange zest

2 Tablespoons dark corn syrup

1 Tablespoon water

3 ¼ cups sifted flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon ground

1 teaspoon powdered ginger

½ teaspoon ground cloves

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

 

Cream the butter and the sugar together in a mixing bowl. Add the egg and continue to mix. Sprinkle in the orange zest, dark corn syrup, and water.
