To ensure that the egg and vanilla essence are thoroughly blended, beat them in.

A second bowl should be used to combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Whisk all of these ingredients together.

While continuing to mix, gradually incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet ones until a dough is formed.

Put rounded tablespoons of dough onto the baking sheets that have been prepared, leaving about two inches of space between each one. You can use a cookie scoop or a spoon to achieve this.

For ten to twelve minutes, or until the edges are a light golden color, bake the cake. The cookies should be allowed to cool for five minutes on the baking sheets before being moved to a wire rack to finish cooling entirely.

In the meantime, as the cookies are cooling, you can make the cream cheese frosting. Cream cheese that has been softened and butter should be mixed together in a mixing dish until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Make sure that your butter and cream cheese have been allowed to soften at room temperature so that you can blend them more smoothly.

To get the correct consistency, you can add a splash of milk if you want the frosting to be thinner than it is traditionally made.
