Ingredients
  Butter 6 Ounce, softened (1 1/2 Stick)
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg 1
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cloves 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Whole cloves 40
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg and vanilla until light and fluffy.
2. Beat in flour, baking powder, ground cloves, and salt on low speed until dough is smooth, scraping down side of bowl frequently with a rubber spatula.
3. Between pieces of floured wax paper, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies with a 2-inch round cutter. Reroll scraps to make additional cookies.
4. Place cookies 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Press a whole clove into top of each cookie. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Let cookies cool 2 minutes on sheets, then remove to racks and let cool completely. Store in a rightly covered container.
