I want to share with you another hobby of mine – and that is baking! I love baking as much as cooking, and being back in Norway I can bake properly again. When I was living in Paris I never baked because I didn’t have the right tools and the kitchen in my studio apartment was tiny. So I am coming to you tonight with a delicious recipe that I found in this book (it is Norwegian), and again I have done my tweaking in this recipe.
225 g room-temperature butter
140 g sugar
2 big eggs
1 ts vanilla extract
400 g flour
1 ts baking soda
1/2 ts grated nutmeg
Cinnamon & sugar for cover
1. Add butter and sugar to a bowl, and mix with a wooden spoon/electric hand mixer. Stir in the eggs and vanilla extract. Sift flour, baking soda, nutmeg and a pinch of salt into the bowl and stir well with the wooden spoon. Divide the dough into two and make them round. Wrap them separately in plastic wrap or plastic bags and place them in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.
2. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celsius.
3. Make the cinnamon cover: mix sugar and cinnamon in a small, low bowl. Divide each dough in 20 small (= 40 cookies) and form them into small balls. Roll them around in the cinnamon cover until completely covered. Place them on the baking tray with some distance between each.
4. Bake the cookies in the middle of the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden. Let them rest on the baking tray for 5-10 minutes. And voila!
I have made these cookies countless of times, and me and my family love them! They are delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or just with a glass of milk.
Have a great day/evening! ❤
