Ingredients

3 Egg yolks
⅔ Cup sugar
1 Cup whipping cream
1 Tsp. cardamom
6 Cups unbleached flour
3 Cups butter, lightly salted

Recipe

Step 1

Beat together egg yolks, sugar and cream.

Step 2

Add cardamom to flour and sift half of the flour, a little at a time, into the egg mixture and mix well.

Step 3

Put the remainder of the flour on counter and place dough on top. Roll dough out to a thick flap, and spread butter in thin layers across the dough. Fold over and roll once more.

Step 4

Roll up and chill for 24 hours.

Step 5

Roll out thin. Cut a cardboard template the size of goro iron; trace and cut cookies from the pattern.

Step 6

Bake in hot, ungreased goro iron until a light golden color. Wipe fat off as it trickles out.

Step 7

Remove from iron with a spatula onto a cutting board. Cut off the frayed edges and cut apart while still hot. Cool completely. May be frozen.
