Swedish Sugar Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Countrywife

A tender, fragrant drop cookie (not rolled). I clipped this from a magazine many, many years ago when I went on a quest to find recipes from the countries of my various ancestors. I have no idea what magazine it was, or who submitted it or even if it's really Swedish!

What a delicious cookie! The spices are subtle. I cut the oil in half, and used butter instead of margarine. These baked up light and flavorful. I will make these again - everyone is enjoying them!
