Cardamom Cookies

My daughter is always saying I should use more cardamom. (It’s ok – I have another daughter who says use more cowbell.) This recipe starts in Persia then takes my usual twists and turns. These cookies are light and fluffy with an earthy flavor.. It’s a winter cookie, not overly sweet. I hope like it.

Dry ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup non-gluten all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
