Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
3 slightly beaten eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed cardamom seeds
1/2 cup chopped almonds
2-1/4 cups flour, sifted before measure

Instructions

Cream together butter and sugar. Add 3 eggs. Combine cinnamon, baking powder, cardamom seeds, almonds and flour. Combine dry mixture with butter, eggs and sugar. Mix well. It will be very sticky. Spoon onto lightly greased cookie sheet or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Spoon into 2, 12-inch lengths about 1-1/2 to 2 inches wide. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Slice into 1/2-inch thick slices before it cools too much. Lay slices on baking sheet and bake at 275 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. It may take a little longer to get them crisp and will continue to dry somewhat after removing from oven.
