I have 2 spice jars of CARDAMOM that I need to use up. I have googled for a few recipes but was wondering if anyone had any family favorites that uses cardamom (ground). Cookies, coffee cake, muffins, quick breads... something along those lines.
Cardamom is one of my favorite spices to use for my apple pie! It will be a taste test as it all depends on what kind of apples one uses! I also made an apple pie jam and used cardamom in it!
That is a common spice used in Scandanavian baking. You might google for Swedish, Danish or Norwegian recipes.

Ever made chai tea? YUM! I like it with sugar too.
1tbsp fresh grated ginger
1tsp black peppercorns
5 cardamom pods, broken open
1 sticks cinnamon
1t whole cloves
Place all ingredients into a 4 quart pot, cover and simmer on low for at least an hour. Try not to let it boil. You may dip into it as early as 20 minutes, but the longer it simmers the better.
Excellent when done in the crock pot, too.
To make with black tea, turn off burner and add a bag or two of good quality darjeeling tea, let steep for 10 minutes or to taste and remove bag.
Ladle the tea into a big mug (through a strainer if need be), add honey, milk (optional), and sip slowly.
Wards off colds, I'm tellin' you. Mom making this for us at night is one of my earliest memories. Major comfort food

In a blender or food processor, blend 1 cup at a time, until mixture is the consistency of fine powder. To serve: Stir 2 heaping tablespoons Chai tea mixture into a mug of hot water.

I gave out jars of this for Christmas presents last year and they were a big hit!
How about St. Lucia cookies and or buns? They are Swedish like laniegirl said. Try them, very good
I added about 1/2 Tbsp of cardamom to the last pineapple upside-down cake that I made - it was wonderful!
I add cardamom to my apple pies as well. It's also great with pears (epicurious.com has a wonderful pear galette recipe, to which I add cardamom).
I use it in my Swedish meatballs both in the meatball and in the cream sauce, along with dill
