“I found this delicious recipe late one evening when my daughter informed she needed to bring a Norwegian food item for a heritage day pot-luck at her school the NEXT day! I had all the ingredients and the cooking time is so short so this is the one I made for her. I'm so glad I did, these turned out to be very delicious and quite different from 'normal' cookies. The recipe is from Authentic Norwegian Cooking by Astrid Karlsen Scott.”
