Get started!



1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice


1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter and 1 cup sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and allspice; beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg in bowl; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls into 6-inch ropes; criss-cross ends to form knot shape. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle generously with sugar-nutmeg mixture.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake 7-10 minutes or until set. (Do not overbake.) Immediately sprinkle with additional nutmeg-sugar mixture. Let cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack.

Tip #1

- Nutmeg is sold ground or whole. For extra fresh flavor, try using fresh grated whole nutmeg. Use a nutmeg grater or grinder.

Tip #2

- Dough must be cold when shaping and baking or cookies won’t hold their shape. For best results, shape cookies; place onto cookie sheets. Refrigerate filled cookie sheets 5 minutes; bake as directed.
