CINNAMON, CARDAMOM AND ALLSPICE

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

FIRST TIME MAKING THESE......I HAVE A RECIPE THAT CALLS FOR CINNAMON, CARDAMOM AND ALLSPPICE IN A CHAI COOKIE.  I DO NOT HAVE CARDAMOM IN HOUSE.  CAN I MAKE THESE WITHOUT THIS SPICE AND GET A SIMILAR TASTE?

Cardamom has a slightly lemony flavor. You could substitute a small amount of lemon zeste if you have it, but not lemon juice. Otherwise you can live without it.

My latest musical venture!

Moving this to pastries and baking general.

I replace cardamom with a little nutmeg and a little lemon zest.

Cardamom is probably my favourite spice. You'd probably be fine to make them without it as it's purely for flavour, not texture but you'd be missing out.
