Yes, this is another cookie recipe. But I had to make these. I remember eating them a looot when i was a kid back in Denmark. So of course i have to make them.

I really love their small size, they look so pretty when you store them in jars.

I plan to make these again when school start, and fill my pockets with them 😛

If you make them, i recommend that, after you have eaten a few, you give the cookies to someone else to hide them. Or else you will eat way too many of them. Trust me, i did that. But what am i supposed to do? They were just sitting there in front of me, i can’t just ignore them.
