Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a large bowl,cream together sugars and butter; beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
  4. To this mixture add the spices and salt. Mix well.
  5. Add the flour, just enough to make a soft dough. Keep in mind the dough will need to be refrigerated for an hour and the dough will stiffen slightly when chilled.
  6. For each cookie, make one 1 inch ball and three ¼ inch balls. Flatten slightly.
  7. Place the 1 inch flattened balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Next, place two of the ¼ inch balls for ears touching the larger flattened ball. Place one on top for the snout.
  8. Bake for 11-15 minutes or until firm to the touch. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar. Press two chocolate chips into each cookie for eyes and 1 cinnamon candy for each nose.
