    Mirj's Note:

    These are soooooooo addictive. If you don't have ground cardamon, it's okay, but it really adds something special to the flavor.

      It was my turn to bring dessert. One person in the group was diabetic and one can't have gluten and another is on low carb. It's the one recipe that I could find that met everyone's dietary constraints. I substituted agave nectar for the honey and found the all-fruit jam with the lowest sugar content. The cookies were a big hit. The recipe doesn't make very much so next time I'll double. They look nice enough for company and the almond-ness is elegant.

      Made these this weekend, and everyone really liked them. They were light and easy, and are legal for people following the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), or gluten free diets. I used blackberry preserves, but would try something a little less sweet next time, like a tart apricot preserve. Either way, nice recipe.

      The rating on this was an average between myself and my husband. I have not had cardamom (except in chai teas), and was very much intrigued by these little babies. The flavour is so unique... I made these very small, and they were wonderfully nutty, with the barest hint of fruit to provide a note of sweet contrast. I should add that when I was processing these, they didn't really seem to firm up, or become paste-like, so I did add about 1 Tablespoon of flour. My husband was not impressed at all. He thought they were dry, lacking in flavour, and I think really the problem is that he was looking to fix his 'sweet' tooth craving. 4 from me, 2 from him. These go great with chai tea, by the way.
