3/4

3/4
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1
egg
1 1/2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/4

1 1/2
cups powdered sugar

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. On low speed, beat in flour, salt, cardamom and cinnamon. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm.
  • 2 Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. Gently press bottom of drinking glass onto dough to grease, then press into granulated sugar and onto dough balls to flatten to about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
  • 3 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are just beginning to brown and centers of cookies are set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and enough of the milk until glaze is smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over cookies; sprinkle with sugar crystals.
