Norwegian Cinnamon Sticks

Looking for a Christmas cake that is easy to make?

Then these cinnamon sticks are just the thing for you!

The recipe gives about 40 sticks

200 g [7 oz] butter
100 g [3,5 oz] icing sugar
300 g [10,5 oz] flour
1 egg yolk
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


[1] Set the oven to 180° C / 355° F.

[2] Stir butter and icing sugar white and airy. Add the flour and egg yolk and stir it quickly into a dough.

[3] Roll the dough into finger thick sausages and cut them into about 5 cm / 2 in long sticks.

[4] Roll the sticks first in egg white and then in a mixture of sugar and ground cinnamon.

[5] Bake the sticks for about 10 minutes in the middle of the oven.

Chef’s tip: Icing sugar should not be replaced with sugar, because then the dough won’t come together well.
