Hi there. I am an American and not familiar with a couple things. First is cooking cream the same thing as sour cream? Also, how much is a dl? I don't want to add too much or too little, I always try recipes as written, and then adjust to my taste. It is always fun to try new recipes. This looks delicious!

Hi, cooking cream is not sour cream. In Norway we have three different
creams, coffee cream, cooking cream and normal cream. It's just
different fat% so you can use normal cream just use a little bít less
and add som milk instead. 1dl is 3,4oz. :)
