Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease two to three baking trays.
Beat the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Stir in the cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt until well blended.
Mix in the flour, one cup at a time, until the dough gathers together. With floured hands, pinch off small, 1/2 teaspoon amounts of dough, roll into tiny balls, and place on prepared baking trays.
Bake in preheated oven until bottom of biscuits are light tan, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 15 minutes on baking trays. Store in an airtight container.
