Pinterest yes I use this recipe allthe time and I love it and these are theingredients that we’ll be using todayand the first thing we’re gonna do ismelt some butter because this recipecalls for melted butter yes it’s alittle different in that way so let’sget that going and when you melt thebutter you’re gonna add the spices sothat it brings out more flavor in thecookie yeah so I have my spices here Ihave my cinnamon my ginger and of coursemy allspice I want to use 1/2 teaspoonand if it calls for 1/4 I’m just gonnaput only half in here because I don’thave a 1/4 teaspoon so if you have
