These were tasty. A picture would have helped. These were soft, but they were pillowy soft and not chewy soft, which is what we were desiring. My husband made these cookies without the cardamom one evening when he wanted cookies. I chose this recipe because it is labeled easy. However, it could use more detailed instructions for beginning bakers. He did not realize the dry ingredients are supposed to be first combined in a separate bowl. They still turned out pretty well.

Extreamly Great recipe!!! it would be a 5 star if the preptime was quicker...it says 15 mins but it took me about 30-45 mins to get it all layed out and preped, then another 10-20 to mix and lay in baking sheets. But i will say this is by far one of the best cookie recipes i have made. thank you so much for taking the time to put this recipe on "Taste of Home". :-)
