Swedish Cardamom Cookies
Makes about 4 dozen cookies

1/2 pound of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of light or dark Karo syrup
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons of cardamom, freshly ground
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder


Cream together butter and sugar. Add Karo syrup and egg yolk, mixing well. Stir in dry ingredients. Roll the dough into 4 small rolls about an inch thick, wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for about half an hour before baking. Then it is easy to just slice the rolls into 1/4 inch cookies. Bake in preheated oven, 375F for approximately 10 to 12 minutes.
