I came across this on the net and have made them several times, with compliments. This recipe is a very easy drop cookie recipe, for those times when you're in a hurry. You may want to go easy on the cardamom at first, unless you are familiar with it. This makes 12 servings so make sure to double or triple! Raisins are a nice addition! These make a great snack for Santa!
