Vasalopp Cookies / Vasaloppkjeks

Vasaloppet (Swedish for ‘The Vasa Race’) is an annual long-distance cross-country ski race held on the first Sunday of March. The 90 km (56 miles) course starts in the village of Sälen and ends in the town of Mora in northwestern Dalarna, Sweden. It is the oldest and longest cross-country ski race in the world, as well as the race with the highest number of skiers.

The race was inspired by a notable journey made by King Gustav Vasa when he fleeing from Christian II’s soldiers in 1520. The modern competition started in 1922 and it has been a part of the Worldrace events since 1978.

Peanut Butter Cookies / Peanøttsmørkaker

Peanut butter, raisins and oats should give these cookies the perfect
chewiness. Just the thing with a glass of lemonade for the children of the Norwegian post-war baby boom which I was a part back in 1960
when this book was published. Little Ted was 7 back then.
