I've been making these cookies since 1998, when I first saw the recipe in a Land O Lakes cookbook. Everyone LOVES this cookie. The cookies are tender with a nice crunch, not too sweet, with a heavenly aroma. If I were only making one cookie at Christmas, this would be the one!

Love cardamom and used to grow this in Hawaii. Makes an unusual cookie offering during the holidays. When served with cardamom./cinnamon coffee, it becomes a special treat.
