What are Saffron Cardamom Cookies?
Saffron cookies are one of the simple and mild butter cookies flavored with saffron and cardamom powder. They look so festive and perfect to bake during holidays and festivals such as Diwali and Christmas!
I have decorated them with almonds but pistachios or cashews can be used as well.
If you love vanilla flavor, add a few drops of vanilla extract or essence to the cookie dough to enhance the flavors.
