This is a very easy and quick recipe to mix up. Mine took 15 mins to bake and they, very nicely, cured the cookie craving that I have had for a couple of days. They have a lovely flavor that I much enjoyed with a cuppa Earl Gray tea after lunch. I'm thinking that a pinch of nutmeg might not go amiss in here but they really don't need anything more. I made one change in swapping Splenda for the sugar. Thanks for another lovely treat BK. :D

Lovely spiced cookies! These baked up very light, almost like a tea cake, with a nice but not overpowering cardamom flavor. I made 1/4 of the recipe and got 24 small cookies. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

These tasted lovely, but spread like crazy. The result was NOT pretty. Did you use self-rising flour? Maybe 2" apart and not 1/2"? I added some lime zest and a touch of lime juice ... Deee-licious.
