Recipe by Barbara Morgan
"This recipe came from my great grandmother's family who came from Sweden somewhere near the end of the last century. NOTE: You can also add 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa to this recipe. It makes the cookies taste like brownie cookies."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

A very nice cookie, extremely light and crisp. A few notes: make sure the nuts are very finely chopped; I also needed far more than just a half a cup to roll the cookies in. Adding the cocoa makes a delicious cookie, but it's misleading to call it 'brownie like' . If you're not fond of nuts or don't have them on hand, the cocoa version is good even without them, especially if you mix a small amount of cinnamon into the sugar that you roll them in. Lastly, I usually refrigerate sugar cookie doughs before I shape them, to make them easier to handle, but don't do that with this recipe; the dough is soft, but manageable, and it holds the nuts better at room temperature.
I mixed the nuts in, using 2/3 of a cup. I found the cookie just above average. Next time I would use 1 cup of nuts
Makes a very delicious and tender cookie. I added chopped nuts directly to the dough and rolled in cinnamon sugar, topping with a few additional nuts. Other ideas are to top with chocolate kisses or add chocolate chips to the dough. Cookies do spread, I would suggest placing about 3" apart. Baked for 9-10 minutes just until light brown.
Fabulous. I am swedish and we also love almond anything! I used almond extract instead of vanilla. and used finally chopped almonds
this recipe is awsome!!!! i added chocolate chips insted of walnuts and rolled the balls in cinnamon sugar everyone was beging for seconds i will definatly make this recipe again
This is a very good basic cookie. I made them per the recipe, but left off the nuts as I was out. I believe they would be even better with almond extract to give them a decidedly Swedish flare. Bake untill they are light brown around the edges and they will melt in your mouth. Great with tea or coffee.
These are one of my favorite cookies to make for Christmas. They have such a wonderful delicate flavor.
These are simple, but delicious! Instead of walnuts, I used almonds (just personal preference) and also rolled them in cinnamon to give them more flavor. I really really like them with the cinnamon, though I think they would be good without it as well. Be careful not to overbake. My first batch was a little crispy.
