Swedish Rye Cookies Recipe
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ¼ cup white sugar
- ½ cup rye flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ⅛ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons water
step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2: Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in rye flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well and add enough water to moisten dough.
step 3: Roll out onto floured board. The thinner the dough, the crispier the cookies will be. Cut into 2 1/2-inch rounds using cutter or floured glass. Cut a small hole off center in each cookie using a thimble.
step 4: Bake on ungreased cookie sheets until slightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Hang on a Christmas tree with ribbon or yarn.
