Orange Cardamom Cookies provide a festive flavor for holiday slice and bake cookies. Make ahead and even freeze until you are ready to bake!
Every year I strive to find my new *favorite* Christmas cookie and this year I decided to use a spice that is often overlooked: cardamom. Slice and Bake Orange Cardamom Cookies are an excellent addition to any cookie tray. Bright and lightly sweetened, they are perfect with tea or coffee.
If you have never had cardamom, it has a light peppery flavor and pairs well with citrus. I decided to use orange and blended these flavor affinities into a simple slice and bake cookie. Slice and bake cookies are one of my go-to’s during the holiday season. I can make the dough days ahead of time, even freeze it, and then when I’m expecting guests, slice, bake and have warm cookies in the oven. Super simple, it is one of my hostess with the mostess tricks. And orange cardamom cookies smell like a warm hug, scenting your entire home.
