2nd Place Cookies
Mar 30th, 2005

Like most workplaces, my work will come up with any excuse to have more sugar lying around. The most egregious example is the tradition of having treats on every floor for every day of December, but I've whined about that one before. The rest of the year we make do with the random Ice Cream Social or some sort of baking related 'fest'. This week we celebrated the 4th Annual Cookiefest, for the first time being held as a judged event.

I wanted to do something different, although I predicted (correctly) that the winning cookie would be some variation on the basic chocolate chip, because that's really what people like best. So I knew mine wouldn't win, but hey you know me, always the rebel.

So here in all its glory is the recipe for the prize-winning* Second Place finisher in the SDRG CookieFest 2005: Swedish Cardamom Cookies.

*Okay, there was no prize. But I think these cookies got the second most number of votes. Let me indulge my delusions of grandeur.


Swedish Cardamom Cookies
Makes about 4 dozen cookies

1/2 pound of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of light or dark Karo syrup
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons of cardamom, freshly ground
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder


Cream together butter and sugar. Add Karo syrup and egg yolk, mixing well. Stir in dry ingredients. Roll the dough into 4 small rolls about an inch thick, wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for about half an hour before baking. Then it is easy to just slice the rolls into 1/4 inch cookies. Bake in preheated oven, 375F for approximately 10 to 12 minutes.
