This recipe comes from a dear Norwegian friend who shared many of her recipe secrets with me when I was just learning to cook. It amazes me how great this cookie tastes when it’s made with so few ingredients.

1 C. butter
1 C. sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2 1/2 C. flour

Cream butter, beat in sugar and eggs. Stir in flour. Press into sandbukkle tins and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool, gently squeeze to remove from tins.

I often sprinkle colored sugar on the top to give them a little color.
