These cookies are so so delicious!!! I used honey as a substitute for molasses and made these as soon as I saw them. Also, I tossed in 3/4 cup of chopped pecans in this! I love green cardamom and the taste of the same in these is out of the world! Soooo gooooood!!!! Thanks a million for such a nice treat!
