I'll be honest - these didn't turn out as I had hoped. They were too solid for that, I wanted them to be lighter, airier. Could be the left-out ingredient, cream of tartar, I suppose. It's just that I can't find cream of tartar here, to save my life. So, I just omitted it. It worked, but.. well. Hard cookies. Per loved them so I still feel ok posting about them, but I was a little bit disappointed. The flavor is great though - VERY cardamom-y. Perfect for dunking in your coffee!
The recipe? It's from Maida Heatter, via Nic at Bakingsheet. I'd love to make them again, but maybe I should try to track down that cream of tartar first.
