How to make

1. In a bowl, add butter and brown sugar, then mix using a mixer. Add the palm sugar syrup while the mixer is still running, then the eggs, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, ground cloves, and salt. Stir until pale.

2. Then sift the flour, baking soda, and powdered milk, then put it into the butter mixture container, and stir using a mixer until evenly distributed.

3. Remove the dough from the container, place the dough on a plastic sheet or wrap the dough using plastic wrap. Then store it in the refrigerator for at least 1-3 hours. This is done because it is easier to flatten and mold the cooled cookie dough.

4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and open the plastic wrap. Dust your work mat, rolling pin, and hands with flour. Then flatten the dough with a rolling pin until it is about ½ cm thick.
