These were really lovely. I made them at Christmas time. Next time I might add a little bit more cardamom. Also, I sprinkled chopped pistachios on the tips--I thought the green would be a nice contrast to the golden orange and go well with the middle-eastern flavors in the cookies. Yum!
Brought in to a group picnic and the cookies were very well received. They are great even without a glaze. Very easy. I use fresh ground cardamon.
