Cardamom Sugar Cookies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • Coarse sugar and/or edible glitter


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cardamom, salt and nutmeg; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Roll each disk directly on parchment to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. snowflake-shaped cookie cutter, leaving at least 2 in. between cookies. Remove trimmings; repeat with remaining dough, refrigerating dough as needed.
Place parchment with cookies on baking sheets. Bake at 325° until edges are lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar and milk. Pipe over cookies and sprinkle with coarse sugar and/or glitter. Let dry completely.
