Picture of Brown Sugar Cardamom Cookies
ingredients.jpg
A delicious spiced cookie that goes well with a cup of tea.  These are best served fresh from the oven so I only bake a few at a time and store the dough in the fridge.  This recipe makes 24 cookies.

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground green cardamom (6-7 pods*)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated/finely minced ginger
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg

*If using whole pods of cardamom, grind them with a spice grinder or motar & pestel without the green outer shell.  (I used the Magic Bullet)

Equipment:

Dry measuring cups
Measuring Spoons
Large mixing bowl
Medium mixing bowl
Electric mixer
Rubber spatula
Parchment paper
Cookie tray

Step 1:

1.  Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.

2.  In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixture on medium for about 3-5 minutes until well incorporated.  Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as necessary.  

3.  Add egg, vanilla and ginger to butter mixture and beat again until it's light and fluffy.

Do you have to do anything with the cardamon? I find it hard to believe that the hand mixer would break up the six or seven pods very well. At best I think you'd get some huge pieces of hull and the cookies wouldn't be that consistent.

Sorry, I should've noted either use ground cardamom or throw the pods in a spice grinder first - without the green shell (I used the magic bullet).

I should have added that those cookies look delicious and I'm looking forward to trying them.
