Just bagging them up for presents before I eat them all... Absolutely delicious! I added 1tsp black pepper and 4 Tbsp golden syrup (makes them crackled on top, but so moreish!) I found that I needed to add lots more flour.
This recipe is great! I got over 100 cookies from it. The Dane at our New Year's party loved them. Said they tasted just like her mom used to make, but they were a little lighter colored than usual. I'll put them in the oven longer next time, because I will definitely be making these again. Thank you for posting this!
This was a great recipe!
I have the last batch in the oven now, and I absolutely love the smell of my apartment! It smells so spicy, and it really brings out the holiday spirit! The construction was ridiculously easy, and they were so quick in the oven. The flavor is spicy and sharp! The only thing is that my turned out fairly pale, even after leaving it in for an extra two minutes. Next time I might roll it in colored sugar or make a powdered-sugar glaze for a bit of visual appeal. but other than that, they are great gems to add to any cookie plate (or in this case, cookie jar ^_^)
These were really simple to put together, and the cardamom is an awesome touch. The texture of the finished cookie was really nice, and the dough was easy to work with (not to mention clean up after) with only a little bit of flour on my hands. I love too that these bake up so quickly, which made this a perfect "large batch" cookie. I doubled this recipe and made three giant plates of cookies in what felt like no time, since by the time I had another tray ready to go in the oven, the first was done! I'll definitely be coming back to this recipe again.
Yum! These were lovely. I liked the fact that they were quite thick...Next time I make them I might put a little less sugar but on the whole they have a very nice christmassy flavour!
I found that rolling the dividing the dough, making into ropes and cutting was rather useless. I simply rolled the dough into balls and placed on the cookie sheet after the first dozen. It was less messy and a lot easier. The taste of the cookie is really phenomenal. I purchased a whole bottle of cardamon for a cranberry bread I made several months ago so I was quite pleased to find this recipe and another way to use that bottle! Really quite delicious and delicately flavored.
sugar cookies are so simple, yet are loved by many. my little neighbor helped me make these and she had a blast! we also decided to use a little icing to decorate them, just for fun!
These are really nice! It's the first time I've tried using cardamom in a recipe, and it adds an almost flowery essence to the cookies. I took the advice from some of the allrecipes comments and rolled these into balls, then dipped them in colored sugar. The texture turns out a lot like a sugar cookie - not exactly crispy, but not exactly chewy either. The dough was so easy to work with and they turned out so pretty, I'm sure I'll be making these again!
I made these for my cookie exchange this year. Very easy to make and good. A rather plain cookie, not too sweet, but good all the same.
