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...

Except for the cardamom, I've been making this recipe for 40 years--thanks to my Swedish mom. I recently tried this with and without the cardamom with my family, and the reviews are mixed. Som...

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.
