Take three pound of the finest Wheat Flower, one pound of fine Sugar,
Cloves, and Mace of each one ounce finely searsed, two pound of butter,
a little Rose-water, knead and mould this very well together, melt your
butter as you put it in; then mould it with your hand forth upon a
board, cut them round with a glass, then lay them on papers, and set
them in an Oven, be sure your Oven be not too hot, so let them stand
till they be coloured enough.

A blast from the past.  An old fashioned recipe we dug up.  
Make something extraordinary tonight.
