Heat oven to 350°
Mix the first 5 ingredients together thoroughly.
Measure flour by dipping method or by sifting.
Blend flour, baking powder, and cloves; stir into butter mixture; mix well.
Shape dough in small balls, about 3/4" in diameter, or in cylindrical shapes formed in 2" long half-moons.
Place cookies on lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 min., or until cookies are set but not browned.
