Baking is a big part of Christmas preparations for those of Norwegian background. This modern version uses chocolate chips.

  • 1 1/3 c .sugar
  • 1 c. plus 2 tbsp. margarine or butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 (12 oz.) pkg. milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 c.)
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat 1 1/2 cups sugar, the margarine, vanilla and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder and chocolate chips. Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Shape each part dough on lightly floured surface into roll, 1 inch in diameter and about 15 inches long.

Place rolls on ungreased cookie sheets; flatten slightly with fork to about 5/8-inch thickness. Mix 3 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over rolls. Bake 13 to 15minutes or until light brown on edges. Slice diagonally into about 1-inch strips while warm. About 5 dozen cookies. Served with coffee, of course - or cold milk.
