    Default Skanska Skorper Recipe

    My mother made These cookies every Christmas.
    When she passed away the cookbook that contained the recipe seemed to disappear.
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Welcome to CK chazjonz. Here's what I found online. Hope one of them will work for you.


    Beat 2 cups sugar with 1/4 lb. butter. Add 1 cup sour cream and 1 egg. Then add 4 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon soda, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 teaspoon
    ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom and 1 cup finely chopped nuts. Spread dough in a greased jelly roll pan 10"x15" (may need to grease hands or spatula because it's sticky). Bake 30 minutes at 350 deg. Let cool completely. Then slice in 1/2" x 3" pieces and place on cookie sheets. Toast until light golden at 250 deg. Makes about 100 pieces.
