Dreams / Drømmer

When traditional cookies are called dreams they kind of leave
a promise of a taste quite dreamlike and these cookies really
taste absolutely delicious. I know, my mother
made them every Christmas

Jelly Filled Sugar Cookies / Gelefylte Småkaker

A cookie recipe found in “Cooky Jar Favourites” published
by the Tested Recipe Institute in 1960
Jelly Filled Sugar Cookies / Gelefylte Småkaker

From the cover: Delicious cookies to serve for dessert – At parties – For Snacks – To pack in lunch boxes.

The fifties and early sixties was a great decade for us kids. No wholemeal bread or raw carrots in the lunch box, just cookies. Our parents had just been through WWII and they wanted the best for us. Cookies were scarce on the ground in the first part of the forties, at least here in Norway due to rationing on most goods, so the post-war baby boom which I was a part of were not denied the sweet stuff.
