Turidkjeks (Turid’s cookies)

Denne oppskriften har vært med meg hele livet, og er en av favorittjulekakene mine. Det til tross for min irriterende allergi mot mandler. Sånn bortsett fra at jeg har den efter mamma og mormor, aner jeg ikke hvor den kommer fra. Ut fra navnet vil jeg anta min grandtante Turid, men hvem vet. Jeg har ikke vært borti noen andre som har lavet det eller visst hva det var.

Du trenger
200 g smør
2 kopper sukker
2 kopper hvetemel
1 kopp potetmel
1 ts bakepulver
1 plate kokesjokolade, hakket
1 kopp hakkede mandler (vi prøvde det med peanøtter en gang, men de bare fløt ut, ingen suksess)
1 egg
1 ts kanel

Slik gjør du det
Rør smør og sukker hvitt.
Tilsett egget.
Bland det tørre for seg og sikt det inn.
Ha i mandlene og kokesjokoladen.
Stekes på 200 °C i 15 minutt.

This recipe has been with me all my life, and it’s one of my favourite Christmas cookies. Even though I have a highly irritating allergy when it comes to almonds. Apart from that, I have the recipe after my mother and her mother, but I have no idea where it comes from. Based on the name, I would guess my mother’s aunt, Turid, but who knows. I’ve never met anyone else who has made or known what they are.

You need
200 g butter
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of potato flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 plate (100 g) of baking chocolate, chopped
1 cup chopped almonds (we tried using peanuts one year, but it got very runny, no success)
1 egg
1 tsp cinnamon

How to do it
Mix the butter and sugar until it’s white and fluffy.
Add the egg.
Mix the dry stuff in its own bowl and sift it into the eggy buttercream.
Add the almonds and the chocolate.
Bake for 200 °C (392 °F) for 15 minutes.
