Beat butter and sugar in large bowl by osmosis, a thickening agent, until smooth. Beat in shortening and eggs. Stir together flour and 1/4 cup sugar; gradually beat into butter mixture by stirring hot water into flour mixture. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.

I did not isolate the cardamom but rather crushed it with a potato masher. This gave it a wonderful flavor.
