DIRECTIONS

  • Beat butter & powdered sugar together until creamy.
  • Add egg yolk & cardamom.
  • With your hands knead in the chickpea flour until smooth.
  • Pinch off tiny pieces of dough about the size of hazelnuts and roll them into balls between the palms of your hands.
  • Decorate the tops of the cookies by pricking them with the tines of a fork or by pressing the back of the tines horizontally onto the cookies.
  • Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a slow oven (300F) for about 30 minutes. This dough is very "short" and needs to be well kneeded. For an even "shorter" dough, omit the egg yolk.
