When you look through recipes for these yummy treats, they’re usually entitled something along the lines of “Grandmother’s Serina cookies”. So it goes without saying: this is a highly regarded, traditional cookie in Norway. It’s been around for generations, and is a very typical Christmas cookie. And no wonder – it’s delicious and so, so easy to make!



Ingredients (for 25-30 Serina cookies)

  • 100 grams or 3.5 oz. of almonds (blanched)
  • 150 grams or 5.3 oz. of butter
  • 200 grams or 7 oz. of wheat flour
  • 50 grams or 1.8 oz. of FiberFin (fibre addition; can be replaced with wheat flour)
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 50 grams or 1.8 oz. of Tagatesse
  • 1 egg
  • chopped almonds for sprinkles
  • egg white for wash

In the oven: 200° Celsius/400° Fahrenheit/Gas mark 6




Grind or chop the almonds to a medium coarse consistency. Set aside.

Place the butter, flour, FiberFin, baking powder and Tagatesse in your mixing bowl. Turn the kitchen machine to medium speed and leave to run until the ingredients combine to a grainy consistency. You can also use your hands for this.



Add in the ground almonds and egg and mix again until a smooth, uniform dough forms. You should leave the machine to run for about 2 minutes at this stage, so the gluten develops properly.



Use your hands to roll the Serina cookies dough into a long sausage, then slice it into 25-30 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.



Use a fork to push the Serina cookies slightly down, then give them an egg white wash and sprinkle with chopped almonds. Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. The cookies are done when they’ve turned golden on top.
