  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Place butter in a large heavy skillet and cook over medium-low heat without stirring for about 15 minutes, or until butter is a light tan color. Pour into mixing bowl. Place over a bowl of cold water and chill until firm.
  3. Add sugar, baking powder, vanilla and cardamom; beat until combined. Stir in flour.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Top each with an almond; press almond slightly into dough.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool.



The browned butter gives this cookie a lovely color and flavor. Next time I will increase the cardamon as it was barley detectable over the browned butter flavor. There was a question about th...

I would give this 5 stars, except that Drommar are NOT traditionally made with cardamom, so I always leave that out. Drommar are not easy to make, so I thought I would leave a few tips: 1. Brow...

This was a really good cookie! I LOVE cardamom and had never thought of using it in any dessert other than rice. I think my cardamom might have been a little old though because I had to nearly ...

This is the most delicious shortbread cookie I've ever tasted. Browning the butter adds a delicous flavor, and the cardamom, which I was unsure about (and therefore only used 1/4 tsp.) was subt...

Great tasting cookie. Batter a bit difficult to work with and I only used 1.5 cups flour because it was getting so dry in my mixer! I also doubled the cardamom and could have used more. Nice ...

This was really delicious and a keeper. I would've given it 5 stars had it not been so fiddly to make.
