DIRECTIONS

  • Sift flour with cardamom, baking soda, and salt.
  • Soften butter. With electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar, and sour cream until light and fluffy.
  • At low speed, beat in flour. Remove from mixer and stir in nuts.
  • Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a roll about 1-1/2" in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350. Cut rolls into 1/4" slices and place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Beat egg whites slightly with electric mixer. Crumble almond paste into egg whites, beating until added. Add sugar two tablespoons at a time, beating until well blended. Place mixture in a pastry bag with a #2 star tip and pipe a circle around the edge of each cookie (to form a wreath shape).
  • Bake 12-15 minutes, or until light brown.
  • When cooled, fill center of wreaths with cherry preserves.
