These spiced macaroons have a sweet aroma of cardamom which enhances from the time they enter the oven and gradually spreads in the air inviting all to enjoy the super crunchy and nutty macaroons. They bring back gorgeous memories of my childhood when my grandmother would make them in the wood oven. Perfect to serve with tea or coffee, as a snack, afternoon tea or dessert, kids will not stop once they get to taste them. These yummy delights are great for their school lunchboxes.
