Danish Cardamom Christmas Cookies

This is my take on cardamom cookies.

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cardamom
2-3 tablespoons sugar

Cream the butter and sugar, then beat the eggs in one at a time, then slowly add the flour and cinnamon.  Cover and stick in the fridge for at least 30-60 minutes, or overnight, or whatever.  Preheat the oven to 350.  Combine the cardamom and sugar in a small bowl.  Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and roll around in the cardamom and sugar, then put on a cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.  Bake for 8-12 minutes.

Ground cardamom works fine, but if you have cardamom seeds, open them up and bruise about 1 tsp worth and mix that with your sugar.
