Marji, THANK YOU! You have brought a very happy memory to life and, if my Norwegian grandmother (who died 30 years ago today, not realizing her dream of making me a baker) were alive, she'd be doing handstands (at the ripe age of 115). I finally made some MARVELOUS cookies (so marvelous that I forgot to make the icing!)! The icing on the cake (no pun intended) is that they were a staple of our Norwegian family, and just the very first recipe that my grandmother tried to teach me. Thank you for the melt-in-your-mouth. almost marzipan, recipe. This will become a regular in our household (even without the nuts, which hubby can't eat -- I made half with and half without almonds). An added plus is that my Canadian-Irish hubby said that they were "sex in a cookie". I had to put them away so that there would be some left for tomorrow. Mange takk, Marji!
