Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 egg

Nutritional Facts

1 cookie equals 78 calories, 4 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 14 mg cholesterol, 42 mg sodium, 10 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1 fat, 1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and cardamom; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. round cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. With the top of a 1/4-cup measuring cup dipped in flour, press an indented edge into each cookie. Using a plastic straw, cut out four holes near the center of the cookie.
  3. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Lace licorice through the holes in each button; trim licorice. Yield: about 3 dozen.
