Swedish Cookies

An easy and tender sugar cookie made with hartshorn. This is NOT a molded cookie recipe, but one that uses hartshorn for leavening. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 scant teaspoon baking ammonia powder (hartshorn)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a food processor with plastic blade or in an electric mixer, combine all ingredients. Process until well mixed. Roll the dough into small balls. Place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. With the tip of finger or a spoon, press lightly on each ball of dough. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and cool completely before storing
