Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
In a small bowl, whisk together
All-Purpose Flour (1 1/4 cups)
Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp)
Ground Cardamom (1/2 tsp)
Salt (1/4 tsp)
In a separate bowl, add
Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup)
Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/3 cup)
and cream for 2-3 minutes, mixing on medium speed.
Pecans (1 cup)
Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp)
Milk (1/2 Tbsp)
and mix for 30 seconds.
Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined. The dough will be soft but it shouldn't stick to your hands.
Roll 1 1/2 tbsp of dough into a 3-inch log and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough, placing each cookie log 2-inch apart.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies starts turning golden brown.
Cool for 10 minutes on the baking tray and then cool completely on a rack.
While the cookies are cooling, add
Freeze Dried Apples (1/4 cup)
Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/4 cup)
to a blender and blend until fine.
Feel free to add
Edible Glitter (to taste)
Powdered Food Coloring (to taste)
to your powdered sugar.
Sift the apple powdered sugar into a bowl. Roll the cooled cookies in the powdered sugar and enjoy!
