Using a pastry blender, blend the flour, salt, sugar, and cardamom together. Work the yeast mixture into the flour. Knead the dough until smooth, about 2 minutes. Form the dough into a ball and allow to rest, about 20 minutes in the refrigerator. Beat 1½ cups butter until smooth. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll into an oblong about ⅜ inches thick. Dot ⅓ of the butter over ⅔ of the dough.
