  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and roast in the oven 5 minutes until they look a little puffed out
  3. Roughly chop almonds using a knife or pulse them in a food processor. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl or mixer, cream together the sugars and butter.
  5. Add the egg, vanilla extract and almond extract and mix just until combined.
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cardamom.
  7. Slowly add the flour to the egg/butter/sugar mixture and mix until combined.
  8. Fold in the white chocolate chips and roasted almonds.
  9. Heat oven to 350 degrees
  10. Optional: Allow dough to sit for 15 minutes. I do this with all of my dough (and pancake batter), but you don’t need to do this if you’re in a hurry.
  11. Form dough balls and place on a lightly oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet.
  12. Bake for 11-13 minutes

    My cookies did not spread. I waited 15 minutes before I baked them. I reviewed the recipe because my batter was very dry, but I didn’t miss anything. I live in Israel, where the Hebrew word for cardamom is “hell.” So, of course when I was upset that they don’t look like the picture, my daughter quipped, “And they taste like ‘hell.'”

        I just made the cookies, and they turned out great. The dough wasn’t dry at all. I even ended up adding more cardamom and am happy I did because I love the flavor of cardamom.

        Did you follow the recipe exactly as it appears in my post? Did you use brown sugar? Was your butter softened? Did you add too much flour? My apologies again that the recipe didn’t work out for you, but I have to admit, those cookies are damn good 😉

    I tried again, and these cookies came out fabulous. Another one that will be added to the rotation: very easy, sophisticated taste, beautiful color and texture. Double points to Julia for responding so quickly with suggestions as to what I did wrong with the first batch.
    Happy New Year!
