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

Verry good, soft cookies. The only thing was that they could have used a bit more sugar and I added cin.

The cookies are really soft and tasty without being overwhelming. I would make them again!

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 ...
