Introduction: Swedish Caramel Cookies / Knäckkakor
This is one of many Swedish cookies we eat for fika. I think they are my favorite ones. In this instructable I will show you step by step how to make these delicious cookies for the family.
Step 1: Ingredients
This is what you will use:
*100 grams of butter
*0.7 cups of sugar
*1 tbsp of baking syrup
*0.7 cups of flour
*1 tbsp of vanilla powder
*1 tsp of baking powder
Step 2: Heat Oven
Put it on 350°F (175°C in the picture)
Step 3: Butter
Bring 100 grams of butter into a bowl. Microwave it for a minute to melt it. Put it in the main bowl of use.
Step 4: Sugar
Add 0.7 cups of sugar (1dl used in the picture) and whisk it around.
Step 5: Syrup
Add 1 tablespoon of baking syrup (1msk used in the picture) and whisk that around too.
Step 6: Flour
Add 0.7 cups of flour (1dl used in the picture).
Step 7: Vanilla Powder
Add 1 tablespoon, tbsp of vanilla powder (1msk used in the picture).
Step 8: Baking Powder
Add 1 teaspoon, tsp of baking powder (1tsk used in the picture).
Step 9: Mix
Mix everything with a tree spoon so it forms to a dough. Add a little flour to make it more solid if necessary.
Step 10: Dough
Put the dough on the table. Cut it into 4 parts. Knead the dough so it doesn't break apart.
Attention! This type of dough breaks apart very easily so be careful and knead it thoroughly with sturdy hands.
Step 11: Formation
Roll out the dough in the hands and place it on the baking sheet. Be careful.
Step 12: Press
Press the rolled dough with your fingers so it's formed flat. Do the same thing with the other 4 parts of dough. I ran out of space so I took another baking sheet.
Step 13: Oven
Place it in the oven and let them be there for 10 minutes.
Step 14: Take Them Out
When you take them out you have to be quick! Grab a knife and cut them sideways. The reason you have to be quick is that they stiffens, becomes solid quick. If you cut them when they are hard they will get damaged.
When you've cut them let them cool down and solidify for about 15 minutes.
Step 15: Done!
And there you have it.
Step 16: Bonus
