    If you have never had cardamom, you are missing out. It is made from the pods of seeds that come from the plants that belong to the ginger family. It has a light peppery flavor with hints of lemon and mint which means it pairs well with citrus of all kinds.

    It’s flavor lends itself extremely well to both savory and sweet dishes such as curries and garam masala spice mixes as well as chai spice mixes and other desserts.

    Make sure you PIN Orange Cardamom Cookies!

    There are two types of cardamom that grow in different regions of the world: green and black. Both are sold as whole pods (which contain the seeds), seeds, as well as ground.

    For baking purposes and especially for cookies, ground is typically the best thing to buy.

    I decided to use orange as it is abundant this time of year and blended with cardamom it is the perfect mix of sweet, spice, and everything nice. What more do you need from a slice and bake cookie?

    Slice and bake Orange Cardamom Cookies are a fabulous idea for a cookie exchange idea or to keep in the freezer for unexpected visitors. Bright and just the right amount of sweet, they are the perfect thing to pair with a cup of tea or coffee.

    We all love baking around the holiday season, but sometimes you are short on time which is where this variety of cookie excels. It is one of my absolute go-to’s for the simple fact that you can make it days ahead of time.

    You can make the dough and wrap it up and leave it in the fridge or even pop it into the freezer. When guests are on their way, all you have to do, as the name suggests, is slice and bake. Voila, warm cookies with minimal effort.

    Super simple, it is one of my hostess with the mostess tricks of the trade. Not only that, but the scent of these cookies will fill your kitchen with the most beautiful and warm smell. What a way to greet your guests during the holidays!

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • Sift together flour through salt. Set aside.
    • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy and light in color. Add egg through cardamom and mix well.
    • Slowly, add flour mixture until fully combined.
    • Form cookie dough into a log about 10 inches long and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours but up to 5 days. If freezing, double wrap with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil.
    • When ready to bake (thaw if frozen), preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cookie dough into 1/4 inch disks and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Cookies will spread, so make sure they have some room.
    • Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned and puffy. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
