I love cardamom and tried it in a recipe for refrigerator cookies. The filling was an after-thought. When they came out of the oven they just seeded to need the chocolate. Doesn't everything? It really works for me and I hope you like it too.

If dough is too soft to work with refrigerate for an hour and then smooth out the roll. The rounder you can make this roll the prettier your cookie will be.

  3. Filling: When cookies are cool, melt chocolate chips and remaining 2 tablespons of butter. Stir together. Mix in cardamom and powdered sugar.

    Frost the bottom of one cookie with this filling. place a second cookie on top of frosting. Makes 1 dozen sandwich cookies.
