Scandinavian Spice Cookies

Keep calm and bake cookies :-) I picked up this recipe at our local organic store a while back, it was in a Frontier Spices brochure. I already had the cookie stamp, and love when a cookie recipe makes 12 cookies or less. This recipe made 10 cookies. For my palate, this will be my favorite cookie in 2020. I don't think any cookie can top this. I love the taste of Cardamon and Almond together. 

Scandinavian Spice Cookies
==========================
Ingredients:
1 teaspoon cardamom powder 
1 dash salt 
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
1/2 cup butter, softened

Directions:
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cardamom, and salt. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the almond extract.

2. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Form into a ball and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or more.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Form the dough into one-inch balls and roll in sugar.

4. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with a cookie stamp (or the back of a fork if you don’t have a stamp). Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

Variation Substitute 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder for the cardamom, and replace the almond extract with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Praying you and your families stay safe and well through these new trying times.
