sifted confectioners' sugar
- Preheat the oven to 300ºF (150ºC).
- In a medium bowl, stir together the butter and sugar until smooth. Stir in flour and cardamom until well blended. Pinch off tablespoonfuls of dough, and roll into a thin rope. Join the ends together in a circle, and place on a greased cookie sheet. Place almond halves on the joints where the circles come together.
- Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The cookies should remain white, but may turn golden at the very edge.
