Norwegian Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LAURIE

Millie my neighbor used to make these for us all the time. I loved the rich buttery taste and the cherry and almond flavor. Cooking time does not include chilling time.

Very good. Next time I'll double the almond extract because we couldn't really taste it. I rolled them in sugar and then flattened them slightly and they came out glittery and very pretty.
