Coffee + Cardamom Shortbread Cookies

These are my go-to cookies: super simple to make, yet they have a complex and unexpected flavour that is addicting. Seriously, you have been warned. -JIll


1 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces

2/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

3 tablespoons freshly ground coffee

2 tablespoons ground cardamom



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream sugar, butter, and salt in a bowl. 

Mix in flour, cardamom, and coffee until the dough comes together.. 

Using an ice-cream scoop or your hands, scoop dough into balls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Lightly press down on each cookie (they don't flatten much during baking).

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cool slightly on pan before transferring to a cooling rack.
