Honey Cardamom Cookies

What a delightful little cookie this turned out to be. Anyone who knows Persians and has been introduced to cardamom (in just about everything) will probably like these a lot :) They are a light little cookie with just the right amount of sweetness and a decent hint of cardamom! Perfect with tea, or alone for a light dessert.

Makes roughly 24 cookies
  • 7 oz unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbs honey
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cups ground almond (aka almond flour you can get at almost any health food or specialty store)
  • 2 tsp ground cardamom
  • More powdered sugar for dusting
  • Preheat oven to 325
  • Melt butter, sugar, and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves (and don't caramelize it!)
  • Sift the flour and baking powder in a large bowl
  • Add almond flour and cardamom to flour and baking powder
  • Stir dry ingredients and create a well in the middle for the butter mixture
  • Add butter mixture and stir all ingredients together
  • Place batter by the tablespoon on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes
  • Cool and dust with powdered sugar
