Sandbakkel Cookie Recipe

I dug out my sandbakkel tins and made a batch to freeze for Christmas. It's been a few years since I've made these. I forgot how good they are!

Sandbakkel are a Scandinavian type shortbread cookie baked in special tins. You can find the tins here. I got my tins from my mom. They are a bit battered, but seasoned well after so many uses. When you first get them, you need to butter them and put them in the oven for awhile. You aren't supposed to wash them after use....just wipe them clean.

These cookies are a bit putsy. First you have to spread the dough evenly in the tins with your fingers, bake them, cool them a bit, then tap them until the cookie falls out. I only have about a dozen tins, so the process takes a few hours before they are all baked. But once they are done, you have a delicious almond shortbread type cookie!

They are good plain, or used as a tart and filled with cream and berries. I love them both ways!
