Much like the Italian biscotti, mandelskorpar is a crispy cookie, best served with coffee or tea. They are baked twice: once to set and brown the loaf, and again to crisp and dry the cookie.
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp. butter
1 egg and 1 yolk or three yolks
½ pt. sour cream
1 level tsp. soda
½ cup chopped almonds
Flour to roll
Mix sugar and butter, add eggs and beat well. Put soda in sour cream. Add chopped almonds. Add flour enough to roll. Form into four flat loaves. Bake in moderate oven until light brown. Cut into one inch pieces and dry in a slow oven for about 45 minutes.
These may be cut smaller and are grand for a tea or coffee party.
