About this recipe: There used to be a commercial version of these years ago but once you have had them home-made there is no comparison. These are not too sweet but they are addicting.

  • 4 cups (500g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (225g) caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 cup (230g) shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
