These soft cookies are similar to the European dutch shortbread cookies.

I flavored them with Rose and Cardamon.

Very easy and fun to make. 

Makes 12

Ingredients

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup confectioners sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter (salted is fine but omit the pinch of salt)

1/2 tsp. double-acting baking powder

1 tsp. cardamom powder

1/2 tsp. rose essence (can substitute with 1 tsp rose water)

1 pinch salt

Method

Preheat oven to 330 F

Prepare baking paper with non-stick material or foil.

Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cardamom.

Add the butter and rose essence and knead lightly into a soft dough.

Form small balls with your clean hands and sightly flatten them.

Place them one inch apart on the baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. Watch carefully they do not turn brown. You want them light and white.

Cool and store.
