A wonderful recipe! I made it for a birthday gathering of friends recently, and everyone went back for more. I served it with "Norwegian gasoline" (coffee) and a big bowl of freshed whipped cream. Couldn't have been better. Thank you!!
Very tasty, ElaineAnn! I did have to make a little adjustment. I didn't have enough almond extract, so I added some slivered almonds in the noodle mix and threw some on top! Turned out pretty good! Thnx for posting, hon. Made for KcK's Forum Scandinavia Kitchen.
