Old fashioned Christmas cookies from scratch is cumbersome, you say? Nope! We have found a classic in Norwegian Christmas cookie tradition that is wonderfully easy in a busy advent season: Pleskener! Or, to stick to the name they went under in the Anker-Elieson families in the late 1700s: “Sokker Plæsker”.

You will hardly be satisfied with one of these cakes! Take three at once, and with a clear conscience. Not many calories here! And: there are currently many recipes for “pleskener”. One variant is to push a raisin or a piece of pickled lemon peel on top. Promise to try it!
