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.

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.
