Key Ingredients


  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 package (16.5 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Bar Dough, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest

Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine ginger, cinnamon and clove in small bowl.

Step 2

Flatten cookie dough on work surface. Sprinkle ginger mixture on top, fold the dough over and knead until the spices are mixed in. Shape cookie dough into about 18 1-inch balls, flatten slightly and arrange on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

Step 3

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are golden. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Step 4

Combine powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and lemon zest in small bowl to make a thick but pourable glaze. Slowly add more milk if needed. Use the back of a spoon or a small spatula to spread the glaze over the tops of the cookies. Set aside until the glaze hardens.
