Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Can substitute ground cardamom for ground cloves. Dough requires 12 hours chilling.

    I chilled the dough about 6 hours instead of the 12 hours in the recipe. Perhaps because of this, it was very soft and difficult to work with. I tried using a cookie mold to shape the cookies, but it was all too soft and sticky, and I had to scrape it out. I ended up rolling some of the dough with a springerle rolling pin and stamping the rest with a cookie stamp. When I baked the first batch, the cookies spread a lot and lost all the definition of the designs. I froze the rest of the dough before baking it, but didn't get better results. That said, it still tastes like a cookie.
