Goro takes time and is best done with two people helping!
3 egg yolks
2/3 cup suguar
1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. cardamom
6 cups unbleached flour
3 cups butter, lightly salted
Beat together egg yolks, sugar and cream. Add cardamom to flour and sift half
of the flour, a little at a time, into the egg mixture and mix well. Put the
remainder of the flour on counter and place dough on top. Roll dough out to a
thick flap, and spread butter in thin layers across the dough. Fold over and
roll once more. Roll up and chill for 24 hours. Roll out thin. Cut a
cardboard template the size of goro iron; trace and cut cookies from the
pattern. Bake in hot ungreased goro iron until a light golden color. Wipe fat
off as it trickles out. Remove from iron with spatula onto a cutting board.
but off the frayed edges and cut apart while still hot. Cool completely. May
be frozen. Makes about 12 dozen.
