How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend sugar and orange zest, then blend in cardamom. Add butter and beat with a mixer until light and fluffy.

Step 2

Beat egg and vanilla into sugar-butter mixture. On low speed, mix in flour.

Step 3

Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop batter onto sheets using a level teaspoon measure. Top each cookie with a pinch of sesame seeds or nuts if you like. Bake until crisp and brown at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
