These memorable cookies are inspired by the flavors of India. My favorite is an Indian Rose Cardamom Shortbread cookie flavored with freshly toasted cardamom pods and rose water. They are very similar to the North Indian shortbread called nankhatai.
Of course, I love the rest of the cookies too, but my second go-to recipe is a Spicy Chocolate cookie. Hit with a bit of Kashmiri chili powder, there is not enough chili to add heat, but the pairing of chocolate and red chili is magical. Happy baking delicious Indian-spiced cookies!
