In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy and light in color. Add egg through cardamom and mix well.
Slowly, add flour mixture until fully combined.
Form cookie dough into a log about 10 inches long and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours but up to 5 days. If freezing, double wrap with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil.
When ready to bake (thaw if frozen), preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cookie dough into 1/4 inch disks and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Cookies will spread, so make sure they have some room.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned and puffy. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
