Norwegian Sugar Cookies

angel Here you will find a good recipe for Norwegian Sugar Cookies. Are you ready to make Norwegian Christmas cookies? But first, how about bringing your children shopping for cookie cutters.

It would be a fun project for the little ones to decorate snowmen, Santas (nisser in Norwegian), angels, stars and Christmas trees. That's what we did at our house before the Holidays.

Preheat oven to 375°F.
2 cups flour (approximately)
1-1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2-cup butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cream or milk

Sift 1-1/2 cups flour with baking powder and salt.
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy and light in color.
Beat in egg, vanilla, and cream.
Stir in flour mixture
Add enough remaining flour to make the dough stiff enough to roll out.

Refrigerate until well chilled.

Place on lightly floured board; roll about 1/8 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes with the floured cutter, or use a cookie press.

Sprinkle with sugar or leave plain so you can decorate them.

Bake on ungreased baking sheets at 375° for 8 10 minutes. Transfer to cooling racks.

You can make heart-shaped cookies for Valentine's Day and Sweetest Day; bunnies for Easter or cars for your little auto aficionados and so on.

Use your imagination and have a good time. Don't worry about a little flour mess on the floor. Take a bunch of pictures and make memories.
