I made these cookies (from here) yesterday. I followed the recipe, except to add a touch of nutmeg and a teaspoon of caraway seeds to the mix. My grandmother used to put caraway seeds in her roll-out spice cookies and I always loved it. To me they looked like sewing stitches!
At the last minute I decided they needed to be iced, so I mixed a Domino box of powdered sugar with some lemon juice and a teaspoon of lemon zest, and dipped them in. There was nothing Irish about these snacks (nor is there anything Irish about me), but they were yum!
