Just one more!

One Christmas cookie, two... Mmm Cookies really are delicious! 
I think I have to stop it now, wait! Just one more!! Ah I can’t stop! 

OK, so you get the picture, I made delicious Christmas cookies yesterday, yep that's right. I love the traditions of Christmas. We can’t stop eating, we drop down to the floor, so full that our dresses and trousers doesn’t fit us anymore... And then we start the New Year, with NEW new year-resolutions of eating less and work out more! YEAH! Here comes the recipe:

Norwegian Serinakaker (serinacookies…?)
500 g flour
300 g margarine
250 g sugar
2 tsp vanilla sugar
½ tsp Salt of Hartshorn (hornsalt)
2 eggs
pearl sugar

Toss all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Crumble the margarine into the dry, and stir in one egg. Knead everything on the table and form dough. Make tiny balls and squeeze them a little flat with a fork. Dip them in egg white and sprinkle with pearl sugar and almonds. 

Into the stove with the poor cookies, 180 C until light yellow/brownish and crispy! (10 min) (Or a little longer, if you like burned things like me;) 

Many Norwegians say these cookies are boring... They just forgot the taste! Mmmums, they really are delicious!
