Mandel Bollar, a Swedish favorite cookie is perfect for this time of year. So easy to make, delicious to eat, and looks great. Reminds me of snow and represents the magic of the season (pictured above the peanut butter cups). Here is the recipe – make it and enjoy it with your loved ones!
200 grams mandelmasa (sweet almond paste
200 grams butter (room temperature, soft)
1 1/4 cup flour
1 egg white to brush on top
almond flakes to roll the balls in
Mash the butter until it is smooth. Grate the almond paste (medium sized side of grate). Mix the two ingredients, add the flour and mix further. Roll the dough as a log – chill in the fridge for an hour. Cut the log into 40 equal pieces – roll into balls. Brush the tops with egg yolk, and roll in almond flakes.
Preheat oven to 175 degrees and bake the almond balls for only 10 minutes. Do not overcook.
