1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon ground cloves
1
pouch Betty Crocker® molasses cookie mix
1/3

  1. In small bowl, mix walnuts, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon and cloves. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, water and egg until dough forms.
  2. Divide dough in half. Place 1 portion of dough between 2 (16x12-inch) sheets of waxed paper; roll dough into 11x6-inch rectangle. Remove top sheet of waxed paper from dough. Sprinkle evenly with half of walnut mixture, pressing into dough. Tightly roll into a log, starting at short side and using bottom sheet of waxed paper as a guide. Repeat with remaining dough portion and walnut mixture. Wrap tightly in waxed paper; freeze 2 hours or until very firm.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F. Unwrap dough; cut into 1/4-inch slices. On ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 1 inch apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
