My Mor-mor was the best cook! She made these wonderful sugar cookies every year. She rolled them thin as paper and put a glaze on them.
This is from a book called, "Norwegian Recipies" copyright 1947.
It says it is a recipe from Mrs. Bredstrup, Brooklyn, N.Y.
Please note I am posting for safekeeping. When I look at this recipe, my instincts tell me that I should add some salt and some almond flavoring, yet in this cookbook, my Mor-mor had placed a huge red X-- so I know this is what she used.
I will leave it up to you how you alter this to your families tastes and preferences.
