The in-laws made another journey down to help us with some household projects, enjoy some fun Halloween activities, and to teach me the Norwegian art of making kringla. My mother-in-law is Norwegian and has come from a long line of kringla-making family members. It was my turn. This fabulous floury cookie is wonderful with coffee and milk!
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 sticks margarine (I used butter)
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 tsp soda
- 5 tsp baking powder
- 6 cups flour
Start by creaming sugar, butter, eggs, and salt.
Once the dough has chilled, roll dough on floured cloth. We used a Bethany Pastry Cloth.
Start by spooning out about 1 cup of dough and rolling it into a ball with floured hands. Then roll the ball into a log roll that is about 1″ thick. Place the rest of the dough back into the refrigerator.
This is one of those floury, semi-sweet gems that taste so good as a snack, or for breakfast or dessert. My mother-in-law even suggested giving them as Christmas gifts! What a fun idea. Thank you to Julie for sharing her skills; I think all the photos above were of her cookies. Ha. But don’t worry if they don’t look perfect, they still taste great!
Enjoy and Happy Week!
