      Oh my goodness, these bars were awesome! The ginger and cardamom added a delightful flavor. The aroma during preparation made my home smell as wonderful as this dessert tasted. I will make this dessert again.

      Oh alligirl, these are soooo good. I did have a few problems, but they were all mine as I didn't read the directions all the way through prior to starting and made the mistake of adding ALL the butter at once - OPPS!! But added extra flour and it worked out fine. Then only had a small square pan so they were thicker than should have been, but the taste is so good with the cardamom and spices that we loved it just like it was. This is a favorite of everyone who tried it.
