These are awesome, but I tweaked the recipe a little to get them that way. I add 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and cardamom (not just the one), plus 1/4 tea white pepper and a dash of black pepper (1/8 tea. or less, I just give a couple shakes across the top).
Then I just roll the dough into 1 inch balls, roll them in a little sugar and cinnamon mixture (amount of cinnamon depends on your tastes, I like a bit), then put them in to bake. So much easier the rolling into the ropes!!
Rolling in the sugar/cinnamon mix helps battle the lack of sweetness others have mentioned. The spicy sweetness makes this a unique cookie that my whole family can't stop eating!! I'm getting ready to make this for the fourth time right now. I've had rave reviews from all of my extended family members as well! I sent a dozen to all of my extended family members in Christmas goodie baskets. I'm so glad I found this recipe!!!
