1 cup of cream (Arne says to use an old fashioned coffe cup, because that is what his mother used)

500 grams of margarine (we substituted this with butter, it was a disaster, so don’t do that!)

Enough flour for the dough

A pinch of salt

Sugar for sprinkling



Pour the cream into a bowl and stor enough flour for a soft dough.

Add the salt.

Cut the margarine into squares and add to the dough.

Work until the dough is crumbly.

On a well floured surface, roll the dough into a 6 mm high rectangle.

Cut the dough into rhomb-shaped cookies and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 200C until the tops are covered with golden brown flecks.
