Italian Christmas Spice Cookies

While growing up in Boston, every Christmas my Neopolitan auntie would make a delicious chocolate round cookie spiced with cloves. She called them "Todors" (phonetic spelling). It's been 50 years since I've had them as no bakery seems to make them. Finally, after much research, I was able to locate a recipe that sounded just like the real thing. I tweaked the recipe a bit till I got the taste that I remembered. Warning: You can't each just one.
