Hi babes!
Back in the good old days, every farm in Norway had to be washed, decorated and ready for Christmas exactly at 5 p.m. December 24th.
Every Norwegian had to be cleaned, and they had to have set out porridge to Santa in the cowshed. Then, when Christmas night came the 24th, everyone had to be done with their baking. Because at 5 p.m., every family gathered to eat fish, sheep, pig, bread, porridge, and delicious cakes. When that was done, they opened their gifts and went to bed.

Today, I thought I would share some delicious, Norwegian Christmas recipes straight from my grandma's cookbook. In my family, Christmas is the time for baking, and the family gathers together every Sunday in December to bake for Christmas.

❥ "Risboller"
You will need:
100 g (4oz) coconut fat/butter
80 g (30z) chocolate
1 egg
1 dl (3 oz) sugar
1 spoon coffee
40 g (1oz) puffed rice

Melt the coconut fat and the chocolate. Wait till it's cold. Mix sugar and the egg till it turns to eggnog (yellow). Mix the coffee, the eggnog and the mix of coconut fat and chocolate together. Carefully, add puffed rice into the mix and mix it all carefully together. Then, make balls out of the mix and place them separately on a plate and put them in a fridge. Wait one hour, then they are ready. Enjoy!

❥''Kokosmakoner''
(Really easy!)
You will need:
4 egg whites
200 g (7oz) sugar
1 spoon vanilla sugar
200 g (7oz) shredded coconut

Start with heating the oven up to 180 Celsius (356 Fahrenheit). Wisp the egg whites in a casserole over medium heat. Add the sugar, the vanilla sugar, and the shredded coconut to the casserole. Wisp in the bottom all the time. After circa 10 minutes, when the mix is thick, take 2 spoons of the mix on a baking tray. Do this till you have used the whole mix. Put it in the oven for 10 minutes, add chocolate when it is done (if you want to)

❥''Kakemenn''
You will need:
100 g (4oz) butter
2 dl (7oz) milk
3 dl (10oz) sugar
1 spoon baking ammonia
1 l (33oz) flour

Mix the butter, the milk, the sugar, the baking ammonia and half of the flour together. Then, mix the rest of the flour in till the mix turns thick. Wrap plastic around the bowl and wait for 1 to 3 hours (the best is if you wait overnight). After that, roll the mix with a rolling pin till it's circa a half centimeter thick. Make figures of the mix with a knife/gingerbread figures.
Warm it in the oven at 175 Celsius (347 Fahrenheit) for 7 minutes. Wait till it's cold, then you can decorate them if you want to.
