I found this recipe some time ago and just got around to making it today. These cookies are really good, would be perfect with a cup of English tea. I changed it just a bit by adding more vanilla. The original recipe also said to flatten which I did and press with a fork ( like peanut butter cookies which I did not do) I also added the icing to mine. If you like Cardamom you will love these!!
