Great ONline Cookie exchange…

This is the most amazing collection of cookies you’ll see anywhere. and of course i show up LATE …duh!!!

Okay, my recipe is one from my childhood, one my Mom made every single Christmas. It’s a bit labor intensive, but not horrible. If you like almonds, Swedish shortbread, you’ll like this one!

And just another note…this is my 2nd post of the day since i screwed up and forgot this was cookie day…so if you’re here looking for a sexy story…you’ll find it right after this post!

 Nilla’s  Swedish Green Cookies

Step 1.

1/3 C butter

1/3 C sugar

2 C flour

2 egg YOLKS, beaten

mix sugar and flour, cut in butter. Once mixed well, add in egg yolks (best by hand but a mixer will work as well. Mixture is NOT smooth, but rather grainy…
Spread onto a cookie sheet (with sides) and tamp it down flat/compact.
preheat oven to 350 but….do NOT put pan in oven yet!!!!!
Step 2
1Tbsp butter
1/3 C sugar
1/3 C flour
1 egg
1/4 D finely chopped almonds
Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and mix well to combine. Add flour and almonds, and set aside.
Put cookie sheet with Step 1 mix into oven for 5 minutes. (the butter/egg will be just past “gooey” stage.) DO NOT BROWN!!
Remove cookie sheet from oven.
Add Step 2 mix a bit at a time, spooning dollops of mix around the surface of the mix.
Using a butter knife or spreader dipped in hot water, smooth mix 2 onto mix one (this is more difficult than it sounds, as mix one is very “short” and will make spreading mix one a bit onerous…but it’s worth it!)
Mix 2 may not go all the way to the edge of mix one …unless you choose to double mix two …
Put layered mixes into oven for 10-15 minutes, until toothpick comes out dry…
while this is baking prepare step 3…
Step 3
appx 1 cup conf. sugar
water
food coloring (we always use green, you use what you like.)
1/3 cup finely chopped almonds
mix appx 1 tbsp with conf sugar until it is of glaze consistency…drizzle it in slowly because you may not need the whole tablespoon. Add food coloring and mix well. Glaze should pour off the spoon, not be “spreadable”.
Remove mix 1+2  promptly from oven, and pour mix 3 over the entire surface, spreading with knife as needed. Sprinkle immediately with last 1/3 cup almonds.
Cut while hot into small cookies, appx 1 X 1 then set aside to cool.
When cool, package in airtight container to retain softness (but i like them hard too (huh..once a slut always a slut, i say!)

    1. hey there ts99….they are toooo goood! which is part of why i rarely make them…and usually just to give away or else…you’d have to roll nilla out the door!

      nilla

      1. LOL! I think it’s worth trying to make, especially during the holidays. If they have to roll me out the door, I’ll know who to blame. ;-P

  1. Ooooh, I’ll bet I could burn that butter quicker’n you can say Jack Robinson!
    But for these cookies, I’m willing to give it a shot!
    They look mosty-yummy, thanks for sharing.

    And thank you for playing along! 🙂

    1. Thank YOU for hostessing so beautifully!

      DON”t Burn the butter!!! LOL…seriously…the mix will look white with yellow blobs from the egg…and be *most* unappealing looking.

      ignore it!

    1. Hi Sara!

      it is a bit unusual, isn’t it? been in the family a long time (i’m only 2nd gen in this country)…and it was fun to share. thanks for commenting!

      nilla

    1. *laughing*

      don’t i know it. i was reading recipes last night and had to stop coz it was making me insane wanting cookies!!

      nilla

    1. Green…but you can use whatever color is more suited. I grew up with them green, and when i tried to make them another color, they tasted “off” to me, lol.

      It is a bit tedious but not too bad…i think the worst part is putting mix 2 onto mix 1….but that can be ameliorated a bit by making sure that mix 2 is dropped all over so there is less distance to try to spread it to.

    1. Hi Ronnie, thanks for commenting…and they are good…if you make them, and eat them all…don’t blame me…you have been warned, the dark side awaits…*laughing*

    1. Thanks Jack & Jill!

      They are my fav. holiday cookie for many reasons, but the almond flavor is subtle and …imho…this is a cookie that tastes better on day two than day one…with a nice cuppa of pg tips…heaven!

  2. Nilla – I posted my mother’s recipes on Sara’s blog. Should I e-mail them to you, as well, since some may not have a link to her?

    1. Dave, why don’t you reply here with Sara’s blog link (assuming this is a D/s blog and not a “vanilla” one…or else a lot of kinky people will be responding and that might not be good….

      nilla

      1. thanks Dave….appreciate the link!

        i’m so behind on reading everyones recipes, but i won’t be baking now until next week so i’ll be looking before then, to be sure!
