Gingerbread Cookies, Russian (D, TNT)
Serves: ?

1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon crushed blanched almonds
2 cups flour
1/2 cup raspberry jam
powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Cream the butter and honey in a bowl. Add the egg and beat until well-combined. Add the baking soda, spices and almonds, mixing well. Stir in the flour.

Pinch off marble-sized pieces of the dough and roll them in your hands, then flatten them on a floured surface with your palms.

Spread jam on half of the cookies. Cover each one with a plain cookie and seal the edges with your fingertips so that the jam does not leak out while the cookies are baking.

Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.

When they have cooled, sprinkle icing sugar over them.
