30 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1 c
butter
1 c
powdered sugar
1
egg yolk
1 tsp
ground cardamom
2 c
chickpea flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat butter & powdered sugar together until creamy.
2
Add egg yolk & cardamom.
3
With your hands knead in the chickpea flour until smooth.
4
This dough is very "short" and needs to be well kneaded. For an even "shorter" dough, omit the egg yolk.
5
Pinch off tiny pieces of dough about the size of hazelnuts and roll them into balls between the palms of your hands.
6
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.
7
Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a slow oven (300F) for about 30 minutes.
