Swedish Cookies (Brunscrackers) Recipe
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour and baking soda.
step 2: In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla sugar, and golden syrup; mix well. Stir in the flour and mix until just incorporated. Form dough into two, 1 inch thick elongated rolls the length of your cookie pan. Place them on the cookie pan with enough space in between for them to spread.
step 3: Bake in preheated oven until they are light golden brown and have flattened; about 20 to 22 minutes if using margarine, or 13 to 15 minutes if using butter. Remove from oven and let cool slightly for about 3 minutes. Cut diagonally into 1 to 2 inch strips while still warm. Remove individual cookies to cool on a wire rack.
