  • Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg yolk.
  • Stir in the cardamom, salt, and flour.
  • Divide the dough in two, roughly shape each piece into a log about 1 inch thick, then roll in plastic wrap or wax paper. Pull each log through you thumb and first finger to make it even and, if you prefer, longer and narrower.

  • Note: Time to Make does not include the time to chill the dough.
