Being Danish, I look forward to making my Christmas cookies each year. It's been over 40 years since I bought the little ornament above in Copenhagen. I love bringing it out each year and putting it in a special place on my tree.
I followed the recipe as written using dark Karo syrup for the brown baking syrup. You may wish to add a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the dry ingredients. After you mix the dough, roll it into logs and refrigerate for two days before baking.
This recipe made about 150+ cookies for me. Do you like the new Emma Bridgewater Christmas plate I bought for myself? It matches the teacup and saucer that my daughter bought for me last year. These cookies are flavorful and very crisp. I had to laugh to myself as they reminded me of poker chips the way they sounded when I put them in the serving plate! And, no, I don't play poker :)
There are many different recipes out there for brune kager. You can search online or maybe you have a much loved cookbook with a recipe you could use. Here's a small collection of my Scandinavian recipe books.
The brune kager are all tucked away my new cookie tin waiting to make their appearance on Christmas eve. I just love these new Scandinavian cookie tins that my daughter gave me for my birthday.
Do you have a special holiday recipe that you make each season? I wish each of you blessings during this special time of year. And, thank you for visiting with me today.
With my best wishes,
