Kari Finngaard shares her best recipes for oatcakes, chequerboard cookies, chocolate brownies, gingerbread, honey cake, and much more. Classics such as French madeleines and Italian biscotti are also included. Christmas cookies are not forgotten either. The book also provides inspiring historical information about the cookies, their ingredients and flavorings, along with a range of good baking tips.
With this book you can bake all year round, creating great memories while enjoying the taste and smell of homebaked cookies. Traditionally we celebrate the festive season with sandbakkels, peppernuts, vanilla wreaths, and “Goro” a traditional Norwegian crispy waffle, to name a few.
Cookies are easy to bake and can be kept for a long time. With a full cookie jar, you'll always have something good to have beside your coffee. Cookies are also popular gifts for friends and acquaintances.
