After that spicy coriander bread, today is for the sweet and simple cardamom cookies. I am not much of a sweet bake person. I love baking breads (too obvious, huh?) and other savory dishes but not so much of cookies or cakes. But surprisingly my cookies are reasonably popular whenever I bake them. I guess I should credit the recipe more and less my skills in that regard. Today’s cookies are adapted from Priya’s blog who is an amazing cook and baker and her recipes are fabulous.
Why I like this dish?
These cardamom cookies are very easy and quick to make. They are eggless and have the richness of almonds and cashews. They make for a popular evening snack with tea or a quite bite for travel or a lovely gift to family and friends. Trust me, I have become more popular since I have baked and gifted these cardamom cookies.
