Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter , room temperature

  7. While cookies are cooking, whisk together the remaining 1 cup of powdered sugar, the cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, and ginger in a bowl.
  8. Remove cookies from the oven and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes, then gently coat them with the spice mixture.
  9. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes, then toss them in the spice mixture again.
