    First time I tried cardamom in my baking and I must say I really enjoyed these cookies. They are great with a cup of tea. They are on my must bake cookie list from now on!

    I baked these cookies last night and the whole family loves them. Th only change I made was I used margarine instead of butter.

    An unexpected bonus: these horseshoe-shaped cookies, when baked and all puffy, look like miniature rear ends! I made this recipe for a Christmas cookie exchange, and called them BUTT-er cookies. A big hit!
