Since I am supposed to stay off of my feet for several days because of a bum knee (Can you believe it -- a doctor told me I cannot be in my kitchen!), I thought I would share with you a cookie. I ran across the Swedish recipe for this orange and chocolate-dipped cookie several years ago in a magazine and it quickly became a favorite of all who ate it. At the urging of a neighbor, I entered it in our local newspaper's annual cookie contest in 2007 -- and won. Several weeks later, I was informed it was practically impossible to find a jar of orange marmalade in Minneapolis; all had been sold for the baking of this cookie.
For the past several weeks it seems to me whenever I open the newspaper I see the above photograph which they are using for their holiday cookie contest ad. And today, this cookie (recipe from the Kosta Guest House in Sweden) was just named as one of the top three cookies of all time submitted to the Star Tribune's annual holiday cookie contest. Yes, it really is that good.
So, while I am not standing in my kitchen today, and I am not baking anything in my kitchen today, maybe someone will be making one of my favorite cookies, ever, today.
