Not the usual Kakemenn(norwegian)-Cookie men

So Christmas is creeping slowly closer and closer, and people are going shopping crazy. Did you remember everyone on your list? Did you buy all the gifts? Are you sure, or are you going to be the one on Christmas Day, running around trying to find that perfect gift?

I love Christmas for all the smells, and now the cookie baking has begun.Starting of a little late this year. And I am not going to go cookie monster baking crazy. Only a few different once this time. But first off : I got this recipe from one of my friends, Aina, I have changed it a little bit, since I have this thing that I can never follow a recipe it seems like. I am going to make “normal” cookie men later, since my sister loves them so.  And it was also a chance for me to use my new cookie cutter man.

Makes about 60 cookie men

1 dl coconut oil

50 gr unsalted butter

2 dl palm sugar

1 dl oat milk

1/2 tsp hjortesalt ( I think in English it is called Hartshorn  or Baker´s ammonia, it a kind of salt)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

6 dl spelt flour

———————-

Pre-heat oven to 175C

1. Melt the oil and butter, take of the eye.

2. Add in the sugar, milk, salt, vanilla and the half of the flour.

3.Add more flour until it has just the right texture. Not to hard, but not to “ghewy”. The dough hardens as it stands in the cold

4. Let the dough sit in the refrigerator over night (or for a couple of hrs)

5. Roll out the dough, and make it about 1/2 cm thick.

6.Press out the cookies, and cook for 7-8 minutes or until golden.

7.Cool off.

Enjoy!
