It should not be surprising that these cookies have a crescent shape. Punch out round cakes with a glass and then fold them. Fill the cookies with vanilla cream, jams or as here, with prune filling. The dough gives about 40 cookies.

A classic Christmas cookie recipe found on mills.no
Norwegian Coconut Wreaths/ Kokoskranser

Coconut wreaths taste like the name suggests of coconut. They are shaped like wreaths, and traditionally also have some grooves on the surface. To achieve this the dough should be run through a meat grinder with a star nozzle or a piping bag with a star opening . If you don’t have neither grinder nor piping bag, the dough can be rolled out to sausages with a thickness of your finger and then tie them together to wreaths. 1 serving in this recipe gives about. 40 cookies.
