Instructions
  1. Cut butter into the flour. Do yourself a favor and use a food processor. That way, you won’t warm up the butter too much, and it goes faster.
  2. Add sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger to the flour mixture. Mix well.
  3. Beat the egg, apple cider vinegar, and milk together in a separate bowl. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and then mix / knead until it forms a stiff dough.
  4. Roll the dough out to about 1/4 of an inch in thickness. Cut out rounds with a glass or cookie cutter. The number of cakes you get will of course depend on how big your glass or cutter is!
  5. Poke your cakes 3-4 times with a fork. This will make them a bit fluffier.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!

The original recipe called for Allspice. I bet it tastes great, I just can’t ever seem to find it in my cabinets! (or remember to buy it)
