    These cookie slices were my absolute favorites growing up in Denmark. They are simple but yet so delicious, especially if you are a sweetened coconut fan. This is an old family recipe. I have tried to search the origin but it goes back hundreds of years literally. I have done my best to convert recipe into cups/tablespoons but if you have a scale I recommend that you weigh the ingredients instead of using the other measures. The cookies freeze well. The dough is quite fragile and I recommend that you cool it for 10 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator before rolling it out.

    Recipe #395424

    These cookies are very delicate and melt in your mouth. The name is a bid odd, it is a Danish cookie but directly translated called 'Finnish Bread'. The dough needs to rest for at least one hour which is not included in the prep time. Note - The dough can be frozen for easy planning UPDATE: After Mersaydees review I would like to add that whole raw alminds can be easily skinned/blanched if placed in very hot water for 2 min. This loosens the skin and make it pop off without effort

    Recipe #396621

    A dish does not get much more Nordic than this one; herring, apples, cider, horseradish, parsley - are all traditional ingredients in the Scandinavian kitchen. Herring is usually marinated and this recipe offers a grilled alternative which I much prefer. Serve with peeled cooked small new potatoes

    Recipe #425554

    This recipe is a stable in the Nordic kitchen and can be eaten with any cuts of meat or chicken. UPDATE- I should mention that Danes serve the cucumbers in a bowl on the table with the liquid, each person serve themselves and fork out the cucumbers - meaning that the cucumbers are supposed to be eaten without the pickling liquid.

    Recipe #425525

    This is a very traditional dish in Denmark. Don't let the list of ingredients scare you away, the dish goes together quite smoothly and quickly. I have opted for a mix of pork/turkey in the meatballs whereas the original recipe calls for pork only. In Denmark the ground pork is very lean (9-12% fat) but the fat is much higher in Canada, and the meatballs would be too greasy with only pork. However, if you can get lean (12%) ground pork you should use that only. I sometimes even make a mix of 1/3 each of ground pork, turkey and beef which works well, I make a big batch and freeze the rest of the meatballs. The dish is served over rice with a number of toppings that you add at the table (rasins, bananas, shredded coconut, diced cucumber - I personally never serve it with the toppings, but it is noted in the original recipe.

    Recipe #423942

    These pancakes are served as a dessert in Denmark and the traditional filling is jam and sugar; but you can really add anything to your liking. We also eat them for breakfast. They freeze well for up to 3 months, I place parchment paper between the pancakes and you can easily remove them from the bag even when frozen

    Recipe #323759

    These little dumplings are delicious and fluffy and a stable in a traditional Danish Soup

    Recipe #358908

    This is a traditional Danish recipe often used as part of a wedding reception menu. The recipe originally called for whipping cream but I prefer the lighter version using 5% coffee cream. The mini meatballs take a bit of time to prepare, but you will be happy you did! Below is the lighter version including ground turkey in the meatballs, but if needed 50/50 of beef and pork will work well.

    Recipe #314834

    This side dish is a stable in all Danish homes and is served as a condiment along with pork roast, duck etc. It can be served warm or cold. The recipe is adapted from a Danish cook book 'God Mad - Let at lave' which is also a stable in Danish homes. The prepared cabbage can be frozen for up to 6 months.

    Recipe #372527

    The Danes and the Swedes were in numerous wars over hundreds of years; one reason could have been 'the meatballs'. Most people will think of Sweden and perhaps IKEA when they think of meatballs; however it is also a traditional dish in Denmark and it is a dish that varies from family to family, often being passed down through generations. My recipe goes back at least 100 years, perhaps more; but I have traced it back to my great-grandmother and can remember making the meatballs with my grandmother as a little girl. The difference between the Danish and Swedish meatballs is often that ground pork is added to Danish meatballs making them fluffier and - being Danish - I think more tasty ;)

    Recipe #381211

    This is the traditional Danish Christmas dessert, served on Dec 24 before we walk around the Christmas tree and sing carols. The texture of the rice pudding is somewhat coarse due to the chopped up almonds. A whole blanched almond is placed in the dish and whoever gets this almond wins the almond present. This game is loved by young and old with everybody guessing who has the almond. Usually it is not revealed until all of the dish is gone. The dish can of course be served any time throughout the year but you will be hard pressed to find it on any other date if in Denmark. I blanch the almonds and chop by knife; freshly blanched almonds have a fresher flavour I find.

    Recipe #383685

    These cookies are a stable at any Danish baker's shop. We always make these as part of our Christmas cookie selection. They are small and yummy. If you can you should weigh the ingredients instead of using cups, as the original recipe is measured by weight. Prep time does not include 30 min for cooling of the dough. When buying the marzipan try to look for Danish 'Odense' marzipan in your baking isle. Marzipan from other countries, such as Germany, tend to be sweeter than the ones from Denmark. The marzipan makes the difference in this cookie and adds to the wow factor. You can also make 20 larger hats instead of 40 mini

    Recipe #391095

    To the reviewer that mentioned that these should not be rolled in nuts - step 7 refers to the cookies being rolled into the shape of a nut and not in nuts. Update - I have adjusted the flour down to 2 cups. This recipe makes a bunch of small little cookies that kids in Denmark use to play games during the month of December. I remember playing 'MOUSE'. You need a bunch of Pepper Nuts and some kids. All the Pepper Nuts are placed on a table and one of the kids is sent outside the room. The other kids now choose the Pepper Nut that is IT (or the MOUSE). The kid is called back into the room and has to start eating the Pepper Nuts until he/she reaches the one that is the MOUSE. All the kids then yell MOUSE!!!!!!!!!!! usually to great scare for the poor kid that is IT. I remember eating one after the other thinking 'oh no, this one will make them scream...' Besides being a fun game they also taste good.... This is also a recipe where even little kids can be good helpers when cutting the cookies

    Recipe #396411

    These balls are wonderful savory bites. Place them in little foil cups for beautiful presentation and for something different on your cookie tray.

    Recipe #396632

    You could serve this as a 1st course for company; it is not your usual mayo/tuna salad. The addition of fresh mushrooms and green peas really does the trick. I usually make a lighter version where I will strain the whey out of some plain yoghurt in a sieve and use 1/3 strained yoghurt and 2/3 mayo. If using this method the yogurt must be drained really well. I add the peas when they are still frozen; they thaw quickly and I like them cold in the salad and they do not get mushy
