Spicy Cardamom Cookies

It’s Friday and weekends are meant for sweet treats like cookies! If I was not pregnant, I would tell you weekends are meant for cocktails. But this week, I am 24 weeks pregnant! 


Check out my belly. It is starting to get big. Yesterday, a kindergarten kid looked at my belly, and told me I got fat over Christmas. I told him I ate too many many cookies. He proceeded to tell people that I got fat because I ate too many cookies. Yes that actually happened. 


 Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? Eric and I are puppy sitting my favourite dog. I am also hoping to sew another set of crib sheets and to persuade my darling husband to hang the baby’s wallpaper!

  1. 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 0.5 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 0.25 teaspoon kosher salt
  4. 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  5. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  6. 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  7. 0.25 cup granulated sugar
  8. 0.25 cup packed light brown sugar
  9. 1 large egg
  10. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  11. 1 cup icing sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cardamom, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and lemon juice and beat until combined.
  4. Add the flour mixture and mix just until incorporated.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  6. Roll out the dough. Cut into circles (I used a water glass) and place cookies on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake until the edges are just golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on the baking sheet, then move to a wire rack.
  8. Place the icing sugar in a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of water and whisk until you have a smooth glaze. Drizzle the glaze on the cookies and enjoy!
