Recipe (makes 14 cookies)

Cookie

  • 275 g plain flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • 75 g unsalted butter, diced
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract with seeds

Icing

  • 500 g fondant icing
  • food colouring & sprinkles (if required)

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C/338 degrees F/Gas Mark 3.

Place flour, baking powder and granulated sugar in a mixing bowl and then add butter and rub together with your finger tips, until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.

Make a hollow in the centre and pour in the beaten egg, golden syrup and vanilla extract. Mix together well, until you have a ball of dough. Place the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough to 5mm thick and stamp out using a cookie cutter.

Place on a greased baking sheet 5cm apart with enough room to expand slightly.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, in the middle of the oven, until golden brown and firm. Remove from oven, allowing cookies to cool on a cooling rack.

For icing, roll out fondant thinly and cut out shape with same cookie cutter used for cookies.

Brush a thin coating of golden syrup on the baked cookie and gently place the fondant on top.

Swedish “Havrekakor” … Oat Cookies

Here is the last and final cookie for the week. Yay! Don’t worry ;)… in the future, I wouldn’t be surprised if I baked some more Swedish cookies. The seventh biscuit is “Havrekaka” (in Eng. Oat cookie). The one I have baked is just a plain and simple one, but still tastes lovely. You can use different kinds of toppings such as dark chocolate if you want. 😀

😀

Recipe (makes 18) 

  • 100 gr butter, at room temperature
  • 0.5 dl caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • ½ hjorthornssalt or 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 dl oatmeal
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 1 dl plain flour

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

Cut the butter into small pieces and put them into a bowl.

Pour caster sugar and syrup into the same bowl.

Whisk the three ingredients until you get a smooth mixture. Thereafter, add the hjorthornssalt or baking powder into the bowl.

Add the oatmeal, flour and vanilla sugar. Mix until you get a bit crumbly mixture.

Make small balls and put them onto the parchment paper on the baking sheet.

Flatten every ball with help of a fork.

Bake in the middle of the oven, 10-12 minutes.

You can store them in the fridge or in the freezer!

Swedish Magic Power Cookies

My plan was to bake Swedish “Bondkakor“. I followed the recipe as it was provided (never tried this recipe before). However, in the oven something magical happened to them and they turned out to be something else… hahaha. They look a little bit like Swedish “Knäckflarn” and taste very nice… Here is cookie number six… Swedish Magic Power Cookies… 😀

Recipe (makes 20)

  • 1.75 dl plain flour
  • 1 dl caster sugar
  • 100 gr butter
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tablespoon golden syrup
  • ½ teaspoon water
  • ½ dl chopped sweet almond

Put the flour into a bowl.

Add the caster sugar and butter and whisk until you get a nice and smooth buttery mixture.

Pour the bicarbonate of soda, syrup, water and almond into the mixture.

Continue to whisk until everything is just incorporated.

Roll the dough into one round length. Let it cool in the fridge for about one hour.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

Cut the roll into 1-2 cm pieces.

Make small balls of every piece and place them onto the parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Flatten the cookies with help of a fork.

Bake them in the middle of the oven, 8 minutes.

When the cookies are still warm. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the Magic Power Cookies.

Leave them to cool.

You can store them in the fridge or in the freezer.

Happy Magic Power Baking! 😀
