Cardamom Shortbread Cookies
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground green cardamom
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ lb unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- Cinnamon for sprinkling
Whisk together flour, cardamom, and salt. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, then beat in yolk and cream. At low speed, mix in flour mixture in 3 batches just until a dough forms. Quarter dough and form each piece into a 6-inch disk, then chill, wrapped separately in plastic wrap, until firm, 2 to 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Roll out 1 piece of dough between sheets of parchment paper into an 11-inch round (1/8 inch thick). Slide dough in parchment onto a tray and chill until firm, about 15 minutes. Cut out as many cookies as possible with cookie cutter (chill dough again if necessary), reserving and chilling scraps. Transfer cookies to a parchment-lined large baking sheet, arranging them 1 inch apart. Bake until edges are golden-brown, 9 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
