I mixed 2 Tbl. cinnamon with 3 Tbl. sugar for my rolling mixture. I also replaced 3/4 tsp. cardamom with 1 tsp. cinnamon. I divided the recipe in half and only added 2 cups of flour and an extra egg white. I baked for only 8 minutes. Read More

I didn't have any cardamom, so I substituted it with a bit of cinnamon and an even smaller bit of nutmeg, plus a sprinkle of vanilla extract because I was feeling adventurous. I bet that the original recipe would be better, but my changes gave the cookie an exotic flavor. Read More

These cookies were really good. They're not your traditional sugar cookie they're more soft and puffy. My whole family really enjoyed these. Read More

These cookies were more like a snickerdoodle with cardamom instead of cinnamon. They tasted good but not so good that I want to make them again. The recipe makes a lot so I would half the recipe if you have never tried them before. Read More

I made this recipe for Christmas to make large santa cookies... I used pure vanilla extract (1tsp) instead of cardamom... it yielded 20 santas... very good with the vanilla buttercream frosting that I got from taste of home (2009). Read More
