SweetAmbs Cookie Recipe and Royal Icing Recipe - PDF Download
This is my preferred roll out cookie recipe when decorating with royal icing. This orange vanilla cardamom cookie* (aka orange vanilla spice cookie) is slightly chewy on the inside with crispy edges, keeps its shape while baking, and tastes great. It contains orange zest, vanilla bean and cardamom to give the cookies a unique flavor. It also contains agave syrup, which helps to keep them soft. Agave syrup browns more quickly than sugar, so keep that in mind when baking. This recipe is ideal for making cookies that will be decorated with royal icing.
