These are very rich cookies but oh so good! I scaled the recipe down to a 1/2 batch to make a lattice for a blueberry pie and still had a large glob of dough left over and got 3 cookies. No picture available...cuz I ate them! ;) They're good out of the oven but even better after cooled off and crisped up. I subbed the butter for canola oil, if others want to do so scale it down 1-2 Tbsp or else they will be very greasy to handle. For "1/2 egg" I separated a small egg that had a few drops of yolk left, binded up just perfect. The spice mix is just superb, outta this world! Made for Veggie Swap 24.
These were very good soft cookies. Very unique tasting and slightly addictive (even for me, who isn't crazy about cardamom). Next time I might add a dash of salt.
We absolutely loved these! Not only are they delicious, but easy to put together as well! Like other reviewers, we only got 2 1/2 dozen cookies, and that was using my tsp cookie scoop. Thanks mersaydees for posting this winner, and thanks Cookgirl, for putting it in your Best of 2010 cookbook so I could try it!
Wow, these are delicious cookies! Threw them together in a snap, so very easy! Loved the combo of cardamom and cinnamon, excellent! Made for ZWT 6 :)
Five stars for: taste and easy, excellent directions. I only got 2 dozen out of these. I might have been able to stretch 3 but that would have taken some effort. If I had to choose the perfect cookie this would certainly be it. Reviewed for ZWT #6. Thank you! PS These would make wicked ice cream sandwiches I think!
Incredible cookies Mersaydees. I love cardamom in my cookies, first time pairing it with cinnamon, it was perfect. I grind my own spices, so they were extra tasty. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, the cookies were crisp, tender and oh so flavorful. I will be making these over and over again. Even my cardamom hating neighbors loved these cookies. I just never told them there was cardamom in them. I make my cookies extra large and got about 2 dozen from one batch. Kudos on this excellent recipe. :)
I could tell this was going to be a good recipe when I first combined the cardamom and cinnamon. The recipe is straightforward, and quite tasty - strongly brings to mind cinnamon graham crackers actually. This was my first cookie making adventure, so I'm going to say that's the reason I got nowhere near 5 dozen cookies. But the ones I did get were yummy indeed.
