Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F or 150 degress C.

In a mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar (little at a time) with the softened butter until mixture is light and creamy.

Add Nutmeg Powder and Cardamom Powder and mix well.
In a separate bowl, sift All Purpose Flour with Baking Powder and Salt.

Combine Flour mixture (little at a time) with Butter Mixture to form a soft dough.

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

Knead dough once again and divide into 12 equal portions.

Roll each portion into a smooth ball with no cracks and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax/parchment paper or lightly greased foil. Leave ample space between dough balls.
