Kristin’s Family Recipe of Norwegian Finger Cookies

This is a recipe that has been handed down generation after generation in my family. And it is always served around Christmastime. It is a simple list of ingredients, yet creates a delicious, sweet and buttery confection that reminds me of my grandma.

What you will need:

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 5 TBSP sugar, plus extra 1/4 cup for rolling cookies
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 TBSP water
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans

What to do:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla with spoon.
  • Add flour and water.
  • Fold in nuts.
  • Shape into finger cookies.
  • Roll cookies in extra sugar.
  • Bake on ungreased pan for 15 minutes or until very slightly golden brown.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before handling.
  • Serve immediately, or store in airtight container for up to 3 days.

This recipe yields 16 large or 32 small finger cookies. Enjoy!
