Cardamom Cookies

Cardamom Cookies are soft and yet chewy cardamom flavoured cookies which are going to melt in your mouth and you won’t stop eating one. Cardamom is one of our favourite spice and has an important place in Indian Cuisine, it would seriously take the desserts and even savoury dishes to a next level.

When I was pounding the cardamoms I pestle and mortar my whole house was smelling with this intense flavours of cardamom and it really is kind of therapeutic working with these fragrant spices that makes your mind and body relaxed ad free. I made almost three dozens of these cookies and gave half of them to a friend. As we were fasting when I made those I am not sure about the taste but girls already gave a thumbs up for them.I surely am going to bake another batch of these scrumptious cardamom cookies real soon.

While looking for the recipes I came to know that same kind of cookies are famous in Finland and cardamom is the popular spice in their cuisine. It is really amazing yet weird that we can found almost similar dishes with different names throughout the world cuisine.
