2 1/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons ginger
1 teaspon cinnamon
2 tablespoons anise
1 tablespoon coriander
1 scant teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt

Add to above:

6 tablespoons strong brewed coffee

Dissolve and add to above:

2 teaspoons baking soda
2 tablespoons hot water

Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet, two inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Do not overbake as cookies should stay soft. Yields 60.
