Grandma's Swedish Rusks

Knowledge is Pleasure

I received this recipe as a gift from a friend who was also living in MSU Married Housing with kids while husbands attended engineering school.

325 degrees...30 minutes, soft: 90 minutes, hard

  1. Cream 1 cup butter and scant 2 cups sugar together.
  2. Add 2 eggs and 2 t almond extract, and beat well.
  3. Add 1 c sour cream and 1 c chopped nuts and beat well.
  4. Sift together: 5 c flour, 1 t soda, 1 t salt, 1 t cardamon.

Stir flour mixture into butter mixture.

Divide dough into six parts. Shape each part into 15" rolls. Place side-by-side on UNGREASED cookie sheets.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Cut into 1" slices.

If desired, double-bake the slices for one hour at 250 degrees F.
