Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup golden corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream (35%)
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 pinch salt

Method

In large bowl, beat together butter, granulated and brown sugars and lemon zest until smooth; beat in corn syrup and cream.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom, allspice and salt ; stir into butter mixture to make smooth soft dough. Divide in half and shape into discs; wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1-1/2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

On floured waxed paper, roll out each disc to 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness. Using about 3-inch (8 cm) heart- or reindeer-shaped cookie cutter, cut out shapes, rerolling scraps. Transfer to parchment paper–lined baking sheets; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Bake in 400ºF (200ºC) oven until golden and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.)
