Clouds of Cashew Cardomom Cookies

I found these online posted by me sexy kitchen blog -
and I think they are really cool. Easy to make and I do so love the aroma of cardomom (you know what cardomom is called in hebrew "hel" הל ha! such a weird name for such a wonderful spice!!
The cookies

200 grams sugar
1/4 cup cashews, raw
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp cardamom
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
pinch salt

corsely grind cashews

Put all the ingredients in the mixer and mix until ball forms. Leave at room temp. for 30 minutes to rest.

Form balls the size of pin pongs and flatten with the bottom of a floured cup.

Bake approx. 20 -22 minutes till golden.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and let cool completely.

Please Olivia - send me an email with your address - I would love to send you a box, fresh from the oven. I brought them to work - they lasted 5 minutes and the box is empty!
I love the scent of cardomom!
