    Does anyone have a recipe for skorpers? I grew up in northeastern Ohio (Ashtabula) of Finnish heritage and dunked them in coffee with my grandma's strong coffee (made in a pot, no percolator in those days) starting at about about age 3. I am 58 now. I live in San Francisco area (Moss Beach) now and can't find skorpers anywhere so I could make some if only I had the recipe. Are they just stale nisua? icon_question.gif Help!

    Here is a recipe I found online:





    2 packages of dry yeast ( 4 tsp)
    2 c. milk
    1 1/2 sticks of butter
    1/2 c. sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp cardamom (optional, but tasty!)
    4 to 5 cups of flour

    Melt butter, add milk and heat to 115 F. If you are a beginner, do this carefully as hotter may kill the yeast. Dissolve yeast into the milk mixture. Add sugar, cardamom if you'd like, and the salt. Mix.. Add the flour and knead well into a soft dough. Let rise until doubled in size, about 20-30 mins. .When risen enough, divide the dough into small pieces, around 30. Roll into balls and then let rise for another 20-30 mins. Bake at 450 F, until golden brown, about 5-10 mins. Let cool then cut each roll in half and bake again on a cookie sheet at 450 F for about 8 min. Then let dry in the oven set at 225 F for about an hour. Eat with jelly, lingonberry is always a favorite!


    Here is the link where I found it:

    Here is another link I found that gives info on skorpers if anyone else is interested. Scroll down thru the article to "Cardamom Memories". Interesting.

    Skorpor I have fond memories of Skorpor. I vividly remember sitting in my grandma's kitchen while she made them. She called them "Skorpers" , since she spoke "Swe-nglish"; her own variation of Swedish and English! icon_surprised.gif)

    2 packages of dry yeast ( 4 tsp)
    2 c. milk
    1 1/2 sticks of butter
    1/2 c. sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp cardamom (optional, but tasty!)
    4 to 5 cups of flour


    Melt butter, add milk and heat to 115 F. If you are a beginner, do this carefully as hotter may kill the yeast. Dissolve yeast into the milk mixture.

    Here is a recipe that I've had a long time. Mandel Skorpor (Swedish Rusks) it may be just the one you are looking for. They are like a biscotti only better.

    Hello. Just yesterday I went to the Finnish Heritage Museum in Fairport Harbor and had my first Skorper. I am half Finnish and have heard about skorpers my whole life. I was surprised to see your post about skorpers. I hope that recipe works for you. I am going to try it and see how it comes out. We also found a bakery in Painesville that sold skorpers and we bought some there. They were very good. These particular ones were almond. I hope you respond and let me know about the recipe.
