Rice biscuit with cocoa and cardamom

These lovely biscuits have been made by using a biscuit maker, one of those thing similar to a gun, but more useful and less destructive. Making biscuits has never been so easy! The trick is in the dough. It requires a bit of more butter, as it has to slide perfectly in the machine, in order to allow the "gun" to "shoot" the biscuit perfectly. First time for me with it. Sometimes the shape isn't exactly how it looks on the box but it doesn't really matter! Rice flour makes them even more crumbly, perferct with tea.

Ingredients: 300gr rice flour, 170gr butter, 70gr sugar, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, 1 tsp powdered cardamom, 1 pinch salt

With an electric mixer, mix the butter and the sugar together until you get a soft cream. Add the egg and keep mixing. Then add the flour 1 Tbsp at the time, and finally the cocoa and cardamom or another spice of your choice. Take the dough out and work it in your hands quickly to remove the air so when you push the dough in the biscuit maker, it doesn't creat empty spaces. Cook the biscuits in a pre-heated oven at 180 C for 15 minutes or until golden. Let them cool well before serving.
