Cardamom Snickerdoodle Cookie Cups

Cardamom Snickerdoodle Cookie Cups

There’s something about having cookies around that makes a girl VERY happy. I have a huge sweet tooth so while I try to limit my baking, it’s hard to resist the thought of a soft snickerdoodle right out of the oven (give or take 10 minutes of cooling time).

I was trying to think of a way to elevate a snickerdoodle. Knowing that cinnamon was a component of them, I needed a spice that was mellow enough to not be too overpowering, but also strong enough to give it a good flavor — enter cardamom! I’m fairly new to the cardamom gave and sometimes think it has a weird flavor, but it’s definitely growing on me! It’s a subtle spice that is also very noticeable. I like the idea of not telling people what it is and then having them taste it to see if they can guess. Most of the time their wrong ;P.

These cookies came out awesome! I liked the idea of baking them in mini muffins tins so they would stay soft and delicious for days on end! I love the flavor combination of cinnamon and cardamom and these are the perfect way to match those flavors. I mean, even my friend’s 8 year old son loved them so you know they have to be good.
