This is a deep fried cookie which adorned our Christmas table every year until my Mor-mor's death, in 1981. This recipe came from a book called Norwegian Recipes, copyright 1947. Compiled by Magny Lanstad-Jensen and taken from "Urd" magazine by Mrs. Esther Klausen. My Mor-mor made tons of these every Christmas and while I never had the pleasure of watching her or helping her make them, I have made several attempts with this recipe. Please note that I am mostly posting for safekeeping. I am copying as written because I feel part of the charm of this recipe is the way in which it was written. I do not have information about how hot the oil needs to be nor how long (in minutes) they should be fried. Preparation time does not include chilling dough overnight.
