Mor Monsen Kake

Ruth Lechler


Eating these cookies brings back many happy memories visiting with all our relatives at Grandma and Grandpa's house for the holidays. Grandma always had the cookie jar fully stocked with all of the favorite "Norwegian cookies"! This recipe is one of our family's favorites now...and hopefully will be for generations to come.
