This is my FAVORITE!

Above is a double recipe.
Makes about 36 servings.
If you can buy cardamom in the shell, in bulk, and then grind it yourself, it is MUCH cheaper than buying it already ground. Look around for it. In MN, I found it in the ethnic food section of our local grocery store, in the bulk bags. I have yet to find it in bulk down here in TX. I'm still searching!!
