Since one year I kept a "Cardamon Star Cookies" recipe on hold. Was thinking because of the unusual amount of cardamom, they will be to ďstrongĒ for my friends.
Today finally I made them and to be honest, I will not bring them to the office anymore. They may stay with me and I love them to (their) dead

Here is the recipe:
dough:
125 g butter, softened
70 g sugar
2 egg yolks
30 g of quince jam
15 cardamom pods, shells removed and crushed
200 g flour

glaze:
2 bags of rose hip tea
100 g icing sugar
Candied fruit and sugar sets for garnish, to taste

preparation
Mix softened butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg yolk, quince jam and cardamom and mix well
Mix in flour and quickly press together to form a dough ball. Flatten and leave it covered in a cool place/fridge for about 1 hour.
Roll out dough 5 mm thick on little flour. Cut out stars of different size.
Place them on the baking plate covered with baking paper.
Put it lower third of preheated oven (190 į C) and bake it for about 20 minutes.
Cool it down on a wire rack.

For the icing: make 1/2 cup of dark red rose hip tea. Mix some tea with the icing sugar until itís a thick glaze. ďPaintĒ the stars and decorate with candied fruits (I took cranberries) or decoration sugar. Store it dry in a can and enjoy it.
(For white glaze: use powdered sugar and only water.)

I'm sure you have another nice twist-recipe too, so maybe you like to share it.

They look great!

Wish I had searched more for a Granny recipe binder... I'd create a special IM section!

I will dig out my cupcake books and make 'chai tea' cupcakes soon, made them before and they are yummy!

Shall I send you one? I always print them out and put them into an ordinary ring binder, in the try-out chapter.
Will wait now for your chai-cupcakes.
