FAVIKENS SWEDISH COOKIES

My favourite new cookie is adapted from Faviken, an exciting restaurant I went to in a rather remote part of Sweden. It is in a hunting lodge where you can stay overnight after an adventurous multicourse dinner. They served these amazing cookies at breakfast warm from the oven.

Makes 24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam (or jam of your choice)

Method

    1. In a large bowl whisk flours with sugar and baking powder. Add butter and rub it into the flour with your fingers until crumbly. Add beaten egg to flour mixture and knead only until mixture forms a ball of dough.

    2. Divide dough in half and shape each into a log about 8" long and 2" wide. Wrap tightly. Refrigerate a few hours to overnight.

    3. Preheat oven to 375F. Slice logs into 12 rounds about 3/4" thick. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make an indent in the middle of each cookie with your thumb or bottom of a rounded spoon and fill with about 1/2 tsp jam.

    4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
