    Leah's Kitchen's Note:

    Lovely, simple cookies spiced with cardamom, vanilla, and lemon zest. posted for Zaar World Tour. Instead of the sanding sugar you can just add some food coloring to regular sugar and stir in in until well mixed.

      Awesome cookie Leah. Loved the strong cardamom flavor in the cookie, it was lovely with the lemon rind. I used ground hazelnuts instead of pecans, it was what I had on hand. Garnished the cookies with a simple glaze and dusted with more of the ground hazelnuts. I will definitely be making these again often, they were quick and very easy to make. Thanks for sharing your recipe, it made my christmas tins and trays more special.
