I’m sharing my favorite Scandinavian cookie recipe with you today. They’re a bit of work, but they are flakey and buttery and melt in your mouth.


Berlinerkranser Cookies


4 hard boiled egg yolks


4 raw egg yolks


1 cup of white sugar


1 pound of butter, softened


4-5 cups flour


egg whites


pearl sugar


After hard boiling eggs, remove yolks and crumble into mixing bowl. Add raw egg yolks (reserve whites for later) and sugar, and use paddle attachment to beat for several minutes until smooth, light, and creamy.


Cut butter into pieces. Beat in about 1/4 pound of butter. Once combined, add 1 cup of sugar. Continue adding butter and flour alternately until combined. (Note: This will become a very thick dough. It should combine into a tight ball.


Chill dough for at least an hour.


Preheat oven to 350°F.


Roll dough into ropes about 3/8 inch thick and 4 or 5 inches long. Twist and cross into wreaths. Brush tops with egg whites and sprinkle with pearl sugar. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until slightly golden.




Cowboy Jackpot Christmas 362 x 540


A lucky first kiss in front of a Las Vegas slot machine pays off big for bull rider Boone Hancock and New York college student Gigi Colberg-Staub. During the day they spend together as VIP guests of the casino, an intense attraction develops. Throughout the night they share in the big bed of the comped suite, hot, sensual moves ignite wild climaxes.


When Gigi receives a miscommunication, she believes Boone thinks of her as one-night buckle bunny. She confronts him, but Boone convinces himself it’s best for both of them if she goes on believing that, and he lets her walk out of his life. When he realizes his mistake, and then sees the sacrifice Gigi made for him, is it too late to win her back?

    Yum, that looks like a wonderful recipe (although at first I thought it was a pretzel, lol). Happy Holidays!
