Cardamom Cinnamon Cookies (slice and bake Christmas Cookies) - Margaret Ullrich

This is a handy slice and bake cookie recipe.
Great for this time of year.

Make the dough when you're watching television.
Slice and bake for a warm treat when company's coming.
They'll never know.

Well, they might notice there aren't any dirty bowls around.


For a little variety...
Make slightly fatter logs, then flatten the dough to form a long rectangle 
which, when cut, would make square cookies.
Or you can leave it as a long log, to make regular round cookies.


                        Cardamom Cinnamon Cookies

Have 2 large baking sheets, ungreased

In a large bowl sift together
1 1/4 Cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon salt

In a large mixer bowl beat together until light and fluffy
1/2 Cup margarine 
1/4 Cup packed brown sugar

Add the sifted dry ingredients.
Mix until blended.

Roll the dough between your hands to form logs
8 inches long, 1 1/2 inches wide (see above).

Wrap and store in the refrigerator overnight or longer.

Slice cookies about 1/4 inch thick with a sharp knife, dipped in flour.
Place them on the cookie sheets about 1 inch apart.
