Perfect Cookies for Tea
Perfect Cookies for Tea
I am not sure about everyone, but speaking for myself, I am all for drinking hot beverages, especially herbal tea, once cooler weather sets in. But as with most things in the evenings once we have settled down and finally sit back to relax, we often want a little something to snack on that is somewhat light, yet delicious.
There use to be a time in my life I only drank herbal tea. Than in 2005 I started drinking coffee, and well I will admit, my mornings must begin with a cup of hot coffee. It does not matter what the temperature is, I have to have that cup of steaming coffee! Recently, however, I have gotten back to my herbal tea mixtures, and as I mentioned above, once I have closed down my night's work, I want a snack but not something heavy.
I created this cookie recipe, and have to admit (in my opinion of course) that it is the perfect cookie to have with a cup of hot tea. I have been drinking barley tea today... I must say these cookies go great with it!

Not Real Sweet
I do not want to call this cookie low carb; however, it is very close to it. The cookie is not real sweet, yet it is sweet enough that it enhances the taste of a good herbal tea. I personally believe the cardamom is what gives the cookie that little extra something something.
Of course, as with most recipes, you can modify it to fit your own way of eating. If you do not use sugar, you can always use honey granules, coconut sugar, or date sugar. All of which are really good in baking recipes.
Also, you could substitute the butter with coconut oil (I bet that would taste delicious). Like I said, modify the recipe to fit your eating habits!!
