Greetings blog readers! It's my 50th blog post. yay! I'm so glad that after a year I've been able to share some of my baking adventures with you. Thanks for reading :)
Today I went to the mailbox in the middle of the hundredth winter storm of the year (it feels like it anyway) and I found a package from my fellow food-blogger and college buddy Wilcox! Inside was a nifty little tool that I have often wished for, a sifter! She is so thoughtful and wonderful! She also sent me heart shaped marshmallows that I can't stop eating. Check out her blog at www.morecheesemorechocolate.com.
Clearly I had to use my new tool right away! SO I decided to try out a recipe I've been eyeing for a while. Cardamom cookies.
1 cup butter, softened
¾ cups confectioner’s sugar, plus more for dusting
1 tsp almond extract
1 ¾ cup flour
½ cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp ground cardamom
Start off my mixing together the butter and sugar. In a separate bowl, mix together your dry ingredients.
Slowly add your dry ingredients to the butter mixture.
