Rose Water Glaze

Rose Water Glaze

Another variation on America’s Test Kitchen’s all purpose glaze, I like their use of cream cheese, it helps mellow the sugar.

Cookie Decorating Glaze

This is America’s Test Kitchen’s “Easy All Purpose Glaze” just slightly different way of making it lemon flavoured – going for “subtle” to not over power the cardamom cookies. Variations here too!

Cardamom sugar

I used to add a couple grinds of cardamom and a squeeze of honey to my hot cocoa, or my oatmeal (porridge) or cream of wheat, then my cardamom grinder broke (yes, I hear myself), and I think the other grinder (really, I do hear myself) is at the office, and it’s lockdown, and I don’t want to buy another “thing” right now, so I gave this a go.
