As I was thinking about a recipe to post tonight, I realized that I had not posted many recipes of the Christmas cookies this year. For the past three years, I have had cardamom cookies on the list but they did not make the final cut. So, this was the year that it would finally happen.
Sift together flour, sugar, and spices; stir in peel and almonds. Cut in margarine till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg and milk till mixture forms a ball; chill.
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
3. Roll out to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into circles 1-3/4 inches in diameter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet; sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes until edges are brown.
