These are my FAVORITE Gingerbread cookies ever! BUT-I have a problem with them. They really spread out when I bake them (I've made them 3 or 4 years now). If I roll them too thick they don't bake properly. I have adjusted the baking time and rolled smaller cookies but I just can't seem to get them right. I'm considering baking them at 375 degrees for a shorter period of time this year. The cardamom is what MAKES these cookies. It is so good! You HAVE to find cardamom if you're going to make these--they just won't be as yummy without it (and it's expensive). These cookies are addicting!
