I'm a recent fan of cardamom and I like the idea of a cardamom cookie.
Here's a recipe that I like, I adapted it from Savory Simple, Jennifer Farley.
This recipe makes at least 50 cookies.
Cardamom Snowdrop Cookies:
Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Two sheet pans lined with parchment paper.
1 C Butter, room temperature
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 1/4 C Almond meal
1 1/2 C Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
|For those that aren't familiar with Almond Meal|
1 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 tsp Cardamom
In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment:
1/2 C Confectioners Sugar
Beat for several minutes until creamy.
In a small bowl, sift together:
Reduce Mixer speed to low and slowly add Almond Meal and then Flour.
Scrape sides as needed.
Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
Using a TBS sized cookie scoop, (1 1/2") for a ball and roll each cookie in the palm of your hands to form a ball. Place them 1 " apart onto the sheet pan.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
While the cookies are baking:
Sift the topping ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
Remove the sheet pan from the oven and place it on a cooling rack for a few minutes.
While the cookies are still warm, carefully roll each one in the topping mixture and set set them on another parchment paper lines sheet pan to cool for 15 minutes.
Roll them in the topping again.
Peace in the Kitchen!
