1 1/4 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine ( i like earth balance)
pinch of saffron
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Crumple the saffron in a small bowl or large spoon, add warm water and soak a few minutes
Mix margarine and sugar until fluffy – either in the food processor, of just warm up the margarine until its nearly liquid
Add saffron with the water, cardamom, baking powder and flour
Scoop the mix on a baking paper and make rolls to put in the fridge to rest and harden for at least 1/2 hour.
If you are as lazy as me, just cut the dough rolls in thin slices, press them flat a bit with your palms. If you want to make shapes, roll the dough and put it back into the fridge between two baking paper sheets before cutting the shapes.
375 degrees for ~ 10 mins
Let them cool well before taking them off the baking paper
