    Delish and the smell of the cardamom is beautiful. I made a version of this with English Breakfast tea bags, 3 cardamom pods lightly crushed, because I love cardamom and because I wasn't sure 3 seeds was correct. I used honey instead of sugar to be healthier but would use white sugar next time because I didn't like the honey flavour in this. I used a bit of heavy cream as that is what I had. I will make this again!!

    Delicious! The cardamom seeds make all the difference. I was finally able to find the cardamom seeds at a Middle Eastern store today. Thank you so much for sharing.

I am the mother of a Jewish family. Our children range in age from 30 to 8 years old. I have two grandsons. I love to bake and cook with all of them sharing tips and secrets and laughs and sorrows. I find the kitchen is one of the places where the life blood of our family centers. We raise miniature dachshunds and pekingese on the side and have homeschool our children for over 16 years. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg">
