This is the Swedish version of a snickerdoodle, or similar, childhood cookie that your grandma would offer you when you went over for coffee in the afternoon. They are quite similar to regular thumbprint cookies, but they are larger and the dough contains a little bit of baking powder. They are very easy to make, and super cute to have around!

Jam & Cardamom Cookies – Sylt & Kardemumma Kakor

IMG_3701

And all of a sudden I’m at the end of my semester again. First week of school it always seems so far until the end, yet, every semester it goes by as quick. Thanksgiving break, a week of classes and then finals. This also means that this is the third semester I’m keeping up (well, at least trying to) with the blog – and I’m so happy I do. Even though it’s much harder to after 250+ posts invent new things, find the time amongst all other activities, and, maybe mostly, have the time to post it (I still have some posts since summer that are not yet up….). Here comes a recipe of Jam & Cardamom cookies. I love jam (or thumbprint) cookies, but these comes with a twist. I put an egg in the dough and decreased the amount of flour slightly, this created a much softer cookie. Cardamom can be put in anything (and make it absolutely delicious 🙂 )
