Farmhouse Cookies / Bondekaker

Farmhouse cookies are flat and round cut cookies with distinct pieces of almonds. The recipe came to Norway from Sweden after WWII and we find it for the first time in Gyldendal’s large cookbook published in 1989. The cookies are still popular both in their native Sweden and in Denmark as well. 1 serving of this recipe makes approximately 80 cookies.
