My grandmother was an amazing cook and baker. I remember her ALWAYS having cookies in the freezer for when the grandkids came to visit. These Kringla cookies were one of my top 3 favorite cookie recipes that she made. My kids and I were studying Christmas Around The World last year. This recipe is a Norwegian Christmas Cookie, so we decided we had to make them as part of the unit study. They are soft cookie that just melts in your mouth. I’m thrilled that I can make this cookie with my kids now that my grandmother has passed. There’s nothing like an old family recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
