Swedish dream cookies

I do dream of going to Sweden, and I hope one day that will happen, but for now my Scandi fantasies will have to be lived out with Swedish Dream Cookies. These cookies are called drömmar in Sweden, and a quick on-line search showed me there are many ways to make these shortbread-esqe treats, but Dorie’s recipe uses browned butter and cardamom for the dreamiest of flavors. They’re made in the food processor, and I zipped up the cardamom and sugar in the machine first to get a bit of extra spice hit. After scooping out rounds of dough, you can press an almond in the center or add a bit of jam, thumbprint-style, if you want them a bit sweeter. I went with the whole almonds and I like the look, but I’m now dreaming of them with a chocolate button on top, since I think that would be good with the browned butter, too.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Oh I think a chocolate button would be a winner!

  2. Looks tasty!

  3. Yours look beautiful. We are so in love with these cookies. I like your idea of changing them up a bit, too…that would be nice to just make a big batch and then use almond or jam or chocolate and have a variety. These are going on next year’s Christmas cookie trays for sure.

  4. I hope you make it to Sweden too. Norway is on my bucket list. I look forward to making these whole almond and all.
