  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, cardamom, baking soda and salt.
  • In a large bowl, combine softened butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Cream with electric beaters on medium-high until fluffy.
  • Add egg, molasses, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Beat on high until creamy and light and just combined.
  • On low speed, gradually add the flour mixture until just combined.
  • Divide the dough into 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized balls using a spring-loaded scoop.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are firm and slightly darker at the edges.
  • Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.



Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3 days at room temperature and 6 days in the fridge.
