These tender, buttery cookies are a favorite for Norwegian Christmas celebrations.

Ingredients

2
hard-cooked egg yolks
2
uncooked egg yolks
3/4
cup powdered sugar
1
cup butter, softened
1
teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2
cups all purpose flour
1
egg white, slightly beaten
8
red candied cherries, cut into 6 pieces
8
green candied cherries, cut into tiny pieces

Steps

  • 1 In large bowl, mash hard-cooked egg yolks; combine with uncooked egg yolks and powdered sugar. Add butter and vanilla; blend well. Add flour; mix well. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 to 3 hours for easier handling.

Brush with egg white; decorate each wreath with 1 red cherry piece and 2 or 3 green cherry pieces.
  • 3 Bake at 350°F. for 8 to 14 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets.
