Ingredients
300 grams

Amaranth (popped)
1 generous pinch

Preparation steps

1.

Mix flour, sugar, amaranth, baking powder, salt and anise seed and mound on work surface. Cut cold butter into pieces and place around flour mixture. Press a well into center of flour mixture and pour in honey and egg. Stir mixture outward from the center with a fork, then use a dough scraper to cut butter into mixture until crumbly.

2.

Quickly knead mixture into a smooth dough. Form dough into an elongated log, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 160°C (approximately 325°F). Remove plastic wrap from dough and cut dough with a large knife into slices about 1.5 cm (about 1/3 inch) thick.

3.

Place dough slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake 15-20 minutes. The cookies will be soft after baking and will harden as they cool.
