During Diwali festival, variety of snacks including cookies are made to share with family, neighbors and guests. I developed this recipe during that time.

- Pre heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine flour, baking powder, salt, tea masala and cardamom in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
- In a bowl of stand mixture, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add an egg or heavy cream and beat for 30 seconds or until combined. Scrap sides of bowl to combine everything.
- Add flour and beat to combine on low speed for 30 seconds or until flour is just combined. Remove the bowl.
- Add candied ginger and stir to combine with dough.
- Using a small ice cream scoop, drop cookies on parchment paper lined cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches of space in between.
