Spice Thumprint Cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar

Beat the butter with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the sugar and beat until combined.

Combine the flour, spices, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until combined. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool slightly on the baking sheets, and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Make sure you press an indentation in the center as soon as they come out of the oven so that you can put a bit of your favorite jam in the middle.
