Norwegian Coconut Wreaths/ Kokoskranser

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.

Coconut Brambles / Kokos Brambles

A recipe from “Coconut Dishes That Everybody Loves”
published by Franklin Baker Company in 1931

Coconut-Brambles_thumb3

In context: “Bramble” comes from Germanic bram-bezi, whence come also German Brombeere, Dutch Braambes and French framboise. It originated before the year 1000; Middle English; Old English bræmbel, variant of brǣmel, equivalent to brǣm– (cognate with Dutch braam broom ).

Bramble bushes have long, thorny, arching shoots and root easily. They send up long, arching canes that do not flower or set fruit until the second year of growth. Brambles usually have trifoliate or palmately-compound leaves.

Bramble fruits are aggregate fruits.  Each small unit is called a drupelet. In some, such as the blackberry, the flower receptacle is elongated and part of the ripe fruit, making the blackberry an aggregate-accessory fruit.

You can choose to see the name as refering to the cakes’ bushy look or refering to the fact that they contain blackberry jelly – Ted

Coconut Butterscotch Pie / Kokos- og Smørkaramellpai

A pie recipe from “Cocnut – Sun-Sweetness From The Tropics”
published by Franklin Baker Company in 1928

Coconut Butterscotch Pie / Kokos- og Smørkaramellpai

Butterscotch is a type of confectionery whose primary ingredients are brown sugar and butter, although other ingredients are part of some recipes, such as corn syrup, cream, vanilla, and salt. The earliest known recipes in the middle 19th century used treacle (molasses) in place of or in addition to sugar.

Butterscotch is similar to toffee, but for butterscotch the sugar is boiled to the soft crack stage, and not hard crack as with toffee. Butterscotch sauce, made of butterscotch and cream, is used as a topping for ice cream (particularly sundaes).

The term butterscotch is also often used more specifically of the flavour of brown sugar and butter together, even where the actual confection butterscotch is not involved, such as in butterscotch pudding.
