* 1 cup butter
* 1 cup sugar
* 3 eggs, beaten
* 2 teaspoons cinnamon
* ½ teaspoon nutmeg
* 3 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar together. When light and fluffy add the beaten eggs and beat until well blended. Stir in 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon, all the nutmeg, flour and vanilla extract. Stir until mixed through. Shape into a log shape and wrap with cling film. Place in refrigerator for approximately 4 hours until chilled.

Preheat oven to 350F and grease two cookie sheets.

Unwrap the dough and place on a lightly floured surface. Cut into ¼ inch slices and place an inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake approximately 8 to 10 minutes or until golden and baked through. Mix the remaining teaspoon of cinnamon and a little sugar and sprinkle over the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
