Gingerbread Little Cakes
Many years ago, cookies were sometimes called "little cakes." This updated version is soft and spicy, with an extra flavor boost from crystallized ginger and cardamom. If you don't have cardamom on hand, you can substitute either a 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice or nutmeg. You can also use the rim of a 2 1/2 inch glass to cut the cookies.
