I made some clove cookies this evening. I didn't follow the recipe exactly (I doubled the ground cloves; and I halved the effort, being far too lazy for all those refrigerate/roll-the-dough intermediary steps), but even as low-tech drop cookies they still tasted good.
And the smell! Delightful.
Even if you're not in the mood to bake cookies, run now to your spice cupboard and grab a whiff of ground cloves. Ahhh.
