Cardamom Cookies for Ruth, Kate, and Gabe

I love the flavor of cardamom, and our guests do too. Last weekend Ruth, Kate and Gabe came to visit. They may be our longest running guests – we saw Kate grow up visiting Leith Hall, and now the next generation is doing so. This is for Ruth’s Christmas cookie collection since she has the Norwegian roots to claim it.
