Introduction

I don't know if these are typically Norwegian, but in my family we've made them for years. In my mothers handwritten recipe book she has added "the family's favourites, Christmas 1982". All I can say is that they are VERY good.

  • Top them with 1 decilitre chopped almonds or hazelnuts or a mix of the two, extra cinnamon and sugar. bake 175-200 Celsius for 10-15 minutes. They are soft and good right after you take them out of the oven, but even better when they have cooled down and crispy. MMMMMMmmmmmmmm....

    • I put some rum in it, too. It became even softer. It was delicious!!! I put it in cookie bags and gave it like Christmas presents to my family and friends. They just love it and so do I. This is my favourite recipe!

    • These are amazing. I have just made 4 batches. The syrup I used was golden syrup but I am sure you could use maple if you wanted a nice twist to the cookie. They spread a lot! So be sure to leave room on the tray. Be careful not to leave them to get too dark, a few on the sides ended up being as hard as rocks. I added more cinnamon to make them a bit spicier.

    • When you say syrup, what kind of syrup?
