Egg less Cardamom Crescent Cookies

Over the Christmas my sitter brought this cookies along with other cookies. First we thought she brought it from outside but when I asked her she said that she made this with her grandma's recipe. She is from Eastern Europe and it's a traditional Christmas cookies in their region. So I searched and found lot of recipes for this, since it is egg less I was more interested to make this but I didn't has cookies cutter so I borrowed it from my friend and make this since she has bigger cutter my cookies came out big , I was thinking to dip them in chocolate and have it but as it is cookies are very sweet , I didn't wanted to make it more sweeter so trash that idea but in next batch will try with chocolate. Since my kids love it her cookies they like mine too and they helped me cutting shape too. Traditionally it has vanilla but I have added cardamom to give nice floral touch.

So from  my family to yours Happy Easter to you all.

Ingredients :

1 + 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1/4 cup Powdered Sugar, plus more for dusting
1 tsp Cardamom powder
1/8 tsp Salt

Method : 

Combine the butter and powdered sugar and whisk until light and creamy.
Add the cardamom powder  and salt to it and mix well.
Add the flour and mix until well combine.
Knead it into a soft dough.

Wrap the prepared dough in a plastic wrap and put it in fridge  for about 40 - 60 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
Line the baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.

Remove the dough from the fridge
sprinkle  the kitchen  surface with flour and roll out the dough into 1/4 inch thickness.
If the dough is very stiff to be rolled, let it sit at room temperature for few minutes.
Cut the cookies with a cookie cutter and place them on the prepared baking tray. Re-roll the scraps and repeat.
Bake them in the preheated oven at 350 F  for about 10 - 15 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.
Let them cool slightly.
When the cookies are still warm, sprinkle the powdered sugar on the top of the cookies or dip the warm cookies into the powdered sugar.
Let them cool completely and store in an airtight container.
