Top Review by Baby Kato

Lovely, lovely cookies ellie. I love cardamom and these do not disappoint. These spicy, tender melt in your mouth cookies had so much flavor. I dipped them in simple vanilla glaze so that my dh would try them. Glad I did, as he also really enjoyed them. Embarrassed to say they didn't last long. Can't wait to make these for my sis, she is going to love them also. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe. Made for Rookies Tag Game.
