These Spicy Cookies are Made Using Whole Cardamom Pods

The 'Reclaiming Provincial' blog has put together a recipe for smoky ginger molasses cookies. With fall in full swing, many home bakers are pulling out their favorite autumnal spices. These sweet and spicy cookies contain the perfect blend of cinnamon, ginger and cardamom.

Unlike traditional ginger molasses cookies, this recipe calls for the addition of cardamom. To impart more cardamom flavor, the recipe involves smoking whole cardamom pods and then dusting them with rolling sugar. This process gives the cookie dough a hint of smokiness, which complements the sweeter spices. The end result is a thick and chewy cookie that is bursting with warm fall flavors.

The recipe is perfect for those who are looking for a tasty alternative to pumpkin-flavored treats.
