Merry Christmas Cookies with Cardamom and Lime

Christmas is here! And there is just enough time to bake a few extra nibbles and homemade treats to serve over the holidays. Or if you have forgotten to buy a gift for a guest, wrap these up with a big bow! I have just gotten a fabby buiscuit stamp in Denmark, so I happily stamped all my disks with ‘Made with Love’, perfect for an edible present, right! I love to combine contrasting flavours, such as lime and cardamom, which I have used to spice these Christmas Cookies with. They have a light crumbly texture that go very well with a cup of tea on a cozy afternoon, after all the gift wrapping is done. Merry Christmas to you all! __________________________________________________ Makes 40 100g unsalted butter, at room temperature 100g caster sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 medium free-range eggs, beaten 1/2 lime, juiced 5 cardamom pods, shelled and crushed 300g plain flour 1 tsp baking powder __________________________________________________ Cream the butter, caster sugar, vanilla, crushed cardamom and lime juice together in a bowl until …
