My Christmas Kitchen part 3, Saffrans-skorpor

Saffrans-skorpor/saffron biscuits

They sure are one of my Christmas favorites
I make them every Christmas, and sometimes for the summer as its very good to have some good biscuits in the house. You can choose other flavors, I one time added lavendel, it was super!

yam yam:)


I use a recipe from  

 Saffron and sugar in a mortar
this one once belonged to my grandmother


 Use a machine for making 1/3 of the almonds 
into small pieces

Dark chocolate with high cacao level cut in pieces together with almond in pieces

2 egg, 2 dl sugar 1 g saffron and 1 teaspoon salt, together with almond and chocolate

1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 dl wheatflour,
add some more
little by little, not too much!


 Let the machine make a dough for you


 The dough cut in three pieces, rolled 
and "pushed" on:)

15-20 minutes 180 degrees

Almost ready but need to be cut into pieces and dry in oven of 100 degrees 30-40 minutes


 Ready to eat

Maybe dip it into a glass of red wine
as they do in Italy:)

  2. Good choice! I noticed I forgot to write 1 teaspoon of baking powder should be added together with the flour:) Good Luck! Please write me if you need any support:)

  3. Yum!! I tried a version of this at Maxi recently and it was delicious. They served it with a mix of mascapone and clementines, which added a lovely dimesion to the experience. But they did not have any chocolate in their recipe so it was fun to see how you made your cookies and it made me curious as to how they taste with chocolate. :p

    Thank you for sharing!

  4. I love these cookies and the taste of chocolate is very good. I enjoy them sometimes dipping into a glas of red wine:) Good luck with your christmas preparations:)
