This is an almond butter cookie that melts in your mouth! An old Scandinavian recipe,I have been making this cookie for over 50 years: it was one of the first ones that my Swedish Grandmother taught me to make. However, this is NOT the cookie you make when you are running short on time. You must be proactive and do several steps before you can even begin the cookie itself. It is critical to really brown the butter as it's that key ingredient that adds all the flavour. I will make over 100 of these each Christmas: at the start of the baking day I wil brown and cool the butter. At the end of the baking day, I will combine the ingredients and bake it, knowing that these MUST sit out on the counter to cool 100% or they shatter. The next day I repeat the steps. But, these are so worth the little bit of extra preparation; they are the first cookie to disappear from the tray each year.
