tbsp. light or dark Karo syrup
tsp. baking powder
Cream together butter and sugar. Add Karo syrup and egg yolk, mixing well. Stir in dry ingredients. Roll into 1 inch balls and flatten with a fork or cookie press. Bake in preheated oven, 375 degrees, for approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen cookies. Can be somewhat liberal on amount of spices used. Add or subtract to taste. I like to add a bit more cardamom, it's expensive, so not too much! These cookies freeze very well. They are truly delicious!
