Nougat Cookies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Chewy and sweet, these Swedish cookies take a bit more time to make... but are well worth the extra effort.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Butter a small cake pan.
  • To prepare Nougat: In a frying pan place 1/2 cup of sugar over medium heat and stir. Sugar will turn into liquid caramel. When syrup becomes dark brown, pour into cake pan and let harden.
  • Crush nougat in a mortar or between waxed paper with a hammer into small pieces.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Separate the egg and add the yolk and water. Blend thoroughly. Stir in 1/2 cup of sifted flour and the nougat. Mix well. Sift in the rest of the flour.
  • Knead the dough lightly on a board. Roll the dough into a 1-inch in diameter log. Slice into 1/2-inch thick cookies. Place on greased cookie sheets 3 inches apart and press down with a fork.
  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
