Vanilla Butter Ring Cookies or Vanillekranse, is one of my absolute favorite cookies. They are normally made and served during the entire December for Christmas celebration and is a part of the huge traditional assortment of Danish Christmas cookies. The cookies are sweet, crispy and crunchy from the chopped almonds.
In December “hygge” is to enjoy a warm glass of good smelling, nice tasting, homemade mulled wine, or danish gløgg. Nothing taste more of Christmas then gløgg – and nothing can bring together family and friends than gløgg served with warm ebelskivers!
When you say porridge especially Rice Porridge you also has to say Lump Cakes or Danish Klatkager. Those goes hand in hand. This recipe is a dear one from my childhood. I always always served this treat when visiting my grandparents as a child.
Do you sometimes want dinner (or dessert) to be easy, child friendly and cheap too!? I can recommend preparing rice porridge in oven next time. In Denmark we normally serve rice porridge during December leading up to Christmas. We are calling it Santa’s favorite food!
Today I overruled my kids wishes and decided to introduce them to one of my childhood favorites; tapioca with lemon and vanilla. It’s getting colder outside and today my kids wanted rice porridge sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar and topped with a big spoonful of butter.
Do you feel like Muffins with Lemon and Poppyseeds? I do. I always do! haha – and these delicious muffins drizzled with a refreshingly lemon-icing makes it out for my sixth part in “when a best friend gives you a lemon…”
A refreshingly ice cold Frosted Lemonade topped with whipped cream is my part four in “when a best friend gives you a lemon…”
This, my first lemon post in many will be a classic Danish cake, the lemon cake or classic danish citronmåne! The Danish answer to the donut-eating movie picture of the American cops. Here comes the Lemon moon witch is straight translated from the danish name of the cake; Citronmåne.
When it is summer and hot outside, it is time for a bowl of cold buttermilk soup or koldskål with Nilla Wafers (or kammerjunkere as we call them in Denmark). In my family we (mostly) have this as a dessert, but since it’s the kids and my summer favorite, we can easily eat it…
