Easy Lemon And Cardamom Cookies – perfect for something a little different with your warm drink!
Cardamom gives these cookies a unique taste – and the lemon and cardamom both work so well together. This cardamom cookie recipe may easily become your new favorite.

There is no doubt that a lot of people like lemon cookies, but adding cardamom to your lemon cookies is something you need to try!
We love, love putting spices in our cookies, who said cookies should only be butter, sugar, eggs, and flour? Oh speaking of eggs, these lemon & cardamom cookies are eggless!

You can make these cookies vegan as well if you sub the dairy butter for a vegetable spread alternative.

Get yourself some cardamom and lemons, and go make these cookies!

How To Make Lemon And Cardamom Cookies:

You will need:

1. Flour
2. Butter
3. Sugar
4. Lemon
5. Ground Cardamom
6. Almond Meal

The butter, sugar, and lemon are beaten together until fluffy, you can use an electric mixer for this.
Then the flours and cardamom are folded. The dough is chilled in the fridge for 20 minutes.
We made our cookies small, so the recipe did 9 cookies. Bake them in the oven, then cool them slightly before transferring them to a wire rack.

You can, if you want add lemon icing once the cookies are cooled, but that’s completely optional.
The cookies can last for up to 5 days at room temp in a container.
