      Wonderful and very spicy! The cardamom makes the cookie extra special. I added 1 tsp cinnamon beyond the 1 Tbs in ingredient list, otherwise followed the recipe. I did find that for my oven, they only took 7 min or so to brown lightly on bottom. Will definitely make again - a nice addition to Christmas munchies!

      I liked these cookies a lot but I made some changes to suit my taste. Instead of the almonds I added 3 1/2 tsp almond extract since I didn't have any almonds. They tasted wonderful! Like a spice cookie but with an almond twist. I also didn't use the egg glaze per the past reviewer's suggestion. Thanks for the recipe!

      These cookies were pretty easy to make, and have a nice, spicy taste to them. However, I found that they looked better without the egg glaze.
