Virtual Cookie Exchange

HERE is her blog so check out all the recipes

Klejner (a yummy danish cookie)
3 Eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cream
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon cardamom
2 teaspoons baking powder

Blend softened butter and sugar, then stir in the eggs and cream. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together, then add to first mixture. This should make a soft dough, yet stiff enough to roll. Rollout to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut into diamond shapes with the Fattigman Cutter. Make a slit in the center and pull one point through the slit. Cook in deep fat until brown. Danes like to use a long knitting needle to turn these and to lift them from the fat. A special cutter for cutting these can be purchased and is called Klejner Cutter or Fattigman Cutter.
3 1/2 cups flour.
