Cardamom Cookies

This is an easy cookie recipe from Deborah Madison's, "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone". The cookies are lovely on their own with that wonderful cardamom bite. I also used this recipe as a pie crust and filled it with homemade pear ice cream. The combination of cardamom and pear was spectacular. To use as a "pie crust", I just pressed chilled dough on the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate and then baked in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes. I let the crust cool completely before filling with the ice cream. Put the entire pie back in the freezer for a couple of hours to make sure ice cream hardened up again and then took out 20 minutes before slicing and serving. I then took the pie to an friend's for an India inspired pot luck.
