The 'Food 52' blog recently put together a recipe for traditional Norwegian Christmas cookies. This time of year, there is no shortage of Christmas cookie recipes. This particular recipe helps you recreate a classic Norwegian treat called 'serinakaker.'

Although the recipe uses simple pantry ingredients, baking the cookies does require some finesse. Once all of the ingredients have been combined, the cookie dough will need to be refrigerated. Refrigerating the cookies gives them a sturdy and compact shape that sets them apart from more crumbly biscuits. For decoration, the cookies can be covered with pearl sugar or a small amount of chopped almonds.

The tasty Norwegian Christmas cookies are a simple and rustic alternative to some of the more fussy Christmas desserts served this time of year.
