Delicious Scandanavian treat. Very easy to whip together and a nice change from the basic cookie. from sweet anna's. You can absolutely replace the coconut oil with a little more butter if you’d like… I just love the little hint that the coconut oil adds to the cookies.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt & cardamom. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixer bowl, cream together the butter, coconut oil and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  3. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Mix in the flour mixture until just combined. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a log (about 2 to 2 1/2 inches thick) and roll in plastic wrap or parchment. Place in the fridge to chill for at least an hour (or overnight -- this would be a great place to freeze the dough logs for a future treat. Just thaw them overnight in the fridge and bake as usual!).
  5. When you're getting ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper. Take each roll out of the fridge, slice into rounds about 1/2" thick and place on the baking sheets about 1 inch apart.
  6. Bake until just barely golden brown on bottom, about 8-10 minutes.
