Here's what's cooking in our Kitchen! Ed. 3

Another one of our Christmas traditions. This cookie is Swedish, but is very similar to an Italian Biscotti.


½ c. butter
1/2c. marg.
2c. sugar
2 eggs
4 1/2c.flour
½ c. nuts
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. milk

Cream butter and marg, add sugar cream again. Add eggs and beat. Mix dry ingredients and add to the rest. Form into four logs 12’ long 2’ wide and 1’ tall. Place two logs on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 35-40 min. Logs should be slightly browned and not sticky or raw to cut. Let logs cool slightly. Then, using a bread knife slice each log on a slight angle into ½” pieces. Lay each slice onto its side and spread all over cookie sheets. Place back into oven at 200F. to dry. They will be crisp. Can turn oven off and let dry over night.
