Susan Wittig Albert writes mystery stories. Her main character owns an herb shop and gets drawn into solving mysteries because of her past experiences as a criminal defense attorney. The novels are centered on an herbal theme--and the stories are sprinkled throughout with recipes.
This recipe appealed to me because I love curry and cardamom and was looking for a "different" cookie to take to a tea party. They were a tremendous success--crisp, sweet and a unique flavor.
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
Sift dry ingredients together. Add to creamed mixture, a third at a time. Stir in nuts.
Divide dough into four rolls and wrap each in waxed paper. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (may also be frozen).
Slice into ¼-inch slices and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Let cookies cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove to a rack to cool thoroughly.
