In Norway it is tradition to bake at least 7 different cookies for Chritmas, depending on where you come from in Norway and the different local traditions the cookies may vary a little. This cookie is not on any traditional christmas list, but it is on mine.
I have combined a cookie recipe with a the familys favorite gingersnap cookies.
Ingredients for about 36 large cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
500 g regular salted butter
2.5 dl granulated sugar
2.5 dl brown sugar
5 dl flour
5 dl finely ground almonds
(not almond flour, because it is to dry)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
100g chopped almonds
100 g chopped rsisins
50 g chocolate chips
50 g chopped candied citrus peel
Stir in all the dry ingrediens and drop by large spoonfuls onto a bakingpaper lined baking trays.
Bake for about 10-25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
