Norwegian Christmas Cake / julekake

This type of Norwegian Christmas cake is a strange phenomenon, as we really bake it all year long. It is largely for sale in the stores all year too. And we call it Christmas cake whenever we eat it. It is mostly served either with just butter, or with butter and brown cheese. The name is so incorporated in people my age’s everyday speech that I do not think we really remember that the name really has to do with Christmas.

Peanut Butter Cookies / Peanøttsmørkaker

A cookie recipe found in “Cooky Jar Favourites”
published by the Tested Recipe Institute in 1960

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.
