      Here are the recipes requested.  See yesterday's blog for pictures


1.5 cups butter

1.5 cups sugar 

4 cups white flour

1 tbs. cocnut

1 egg

1 tsp baking powder

mix you sugar, flour and baking powder with a whisk add butter, you can either cut it in or use a mixer until it resembles course crumbs, add your coconut and egg, mix to a crumbly dough now turn out on lightly floured surface and knead into a dough.  Roll into 1.5 inch logs and chill  cut into 1/8 in slices top with colored sugar and coconut bake at 350 until lightly brown.

William  Had to spell that for Schmills who is standing next to me.  He wants people to low who he is.

Lemon Sucre Kasse or citron Sockakakors

1 cup butter room temp

1 cup vegetable oil 

1 cup sugar

1 cup powder sugar

beat this all together with electric mixer

add 2 eggs

1sp vanilla

1tsp lemon flavor

1 tsp lemon zest (optional)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

You can also add 1 small package of lemon instant pudding but that is also optional

4 cups of flour

This will make a soft dough. Put in fridge for a few hours or over night.

I scoop this out with a melon baller and then smash with a stamp, you can use the bottom of a glass or a fork, then top with yellow sugar, bake 350 for 12-15 minutes.

I was able to get all my army uniforms out yesterday after baking and fixed the one dance costume last night before I crashed.

Now I am going into finish up the Peppekakkor and start on the sugar cookies.  Lil sis is due over sometime this afternoon to help create more chaos.

Ah Christmas you gotta love it right?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. What brand coconut do you use? I can only find sugar added coconut. I did find no sugar added coconut, but it was dry and brown. I really don't want to open a coconut and grate it, but I can.

  2. My DIL is Swedish. I will make these (if I find any baking time before they get here) for a familiar taste of home. I know she is missing it: this is her first holiday in the states.

  3. um-I can't say I will add any more to my making this year, but will tuck away for future.

    1. I am about ready to be done and I am only 1/2 way but I really think I need to deliver cookies to people this year of all years.

  4. Thank you for the recipes. I will be baking the lemon ones in Jan for my own birthday LOL
