Nankatai (butter cookies)

This is first time I tried baking and it turned out well. Kids love it and goes well with evening tea/coffee

What you need:
1) Flour - 1 cup
2) Unsalted butter - 1/2 cup
3) Sugar Powder - 1/2 cup
4) Cardomom Powder - 1/4 spoon
5) Baking powder - 1/2 spoon
6) Salt 1/4 spoon
7) Almonds for garnish

1) Mix flour, sugar powder, cardamom powder, baking powder together in a bowl and sift the mixture
2) Take another bowl with the butter and add the mixture from above
3) Take care to add the mixture in parts and mix well into a soft dough
4) Keep in fridge for 15 minutes
5) Preheat oven to 300 degrees
6) Make small balls from the dough and shape it into cookies.
7) Add almonds on top (either sliced or full piece)
8) Bake at 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes - should become light brown
9) Let it cool for a while to harden

You can use other nuts instead of almonds for garnish
