Cardamom Spritz

As far back as I remember, I have loved cardamom. My grandmother often added the spice to her baked goods. I usually make these cookies with a spritz press—and camel disk—that I found at a thrift shop. It reminds me of a time when I rode a camel in the desert while deployed with the Navy. Of course, any design will do! —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

    These are deliciously light cookies. My mom would make these every Christmas and also in the shapes of camels. As children. we would have fun biting the head and legs off first. LOL

    A delightful cookie. Use a light hand for sprinkling cardamom/sugar mixture on top. Cardamom can be overpowering if used too heavily.
