I'm in 8th grade, and had to make a dish from my cultural backround. I made this, and everyone loved them. I brought 60, and there wern't any left after class. They are easy to make, and taste awesome. Add whipped cream, and they are even better! 5 stars

Would make this again.
These are not quite the cookies my Grandma used to bake but they are very close. Unfortunately I was never interested in learning how to make the cookies my Norwegian grandmother used to bake until after her death. Since all of her recipes were written in Norwegian I thought the cookies I loved as a child were lost to me forever. Over the years I have tried many recipes for the cookies she made and have always been disappointed. This time the consistency was right and the taste was almost what I remembered. The only thing missing from these cookies was my Grandma's loving touch. Thanks for giving me back a wonderful holiday tradition. And as they say in Norwegian "Glad Jul!" (Merry Christmas) 5 stars
