My family usually prefers the savory over the sweet, but there’s something about the holidays that makes me want to resurrect those cookie cutters.  Of course plain old sugar cookies won’t cut it for my little gastronomes, so I went a-surfing and found this delicious recipe for Saffron Cardamom Shortbread Cookies (thanks MangoPowerGirl ). But Caveat Baker – the aromas from these cookies will transport you to the lush, green cardamom fields of India, so you may want to build-in some reminiscing time.

Here’s the link to the recipe.  The only modifications we made were to use 1 1/2 sticks of butter (instead of 2), white wheat flour and to add 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground cardamom to the cookie dough itself.

    I love getting the letters, but please really don’t go telling folks they are heading to have about an individual a week. We have been lucky to have a single a month. You need to do a little better than that….or prevent the pinocchio stories at the quite least. If just one a month is what it is, then that’s what it is.
