I think the recipe is great. That said, I did make a few changes that other reviewers suggested... such as additional spice. I added 1/4 t white pepper, some allspice, ginger and cloves and upped the cardamom to 1 1/2 t. They were 'too' spicy for my 6 year old... so maybe next time I'll tone that back a bit. Normally he loves cinnamon and other Christmas spices, but it was a bit much. (not for me, just for him) I think a tab more flour is needed as my cookies flattened out very quickly and got crusty edges on some. I did roll some of them in sugar, just to see the results and did like the little outer crunch it gave as well as making them look pretty. So, when I do these for Christmas, I think I'll do them with the sugar. I imagine some colored sugar on there would work well too and be very pretty.
