We use real ground almonds. 2 sticks of butter 1 cup of sugar 3 1/4 cups flour 2 eggs 1/2 cup ground almonds cream butter and sugar together. Add flour and eggs and then almonds. Chill then press into tins and bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow to cool and remove from tins. Note: do NOT wash tins. New tins may need to have cooking spray the first use but after use the cookies should not stick.

Perfect sandbakkels - just like my Norwegian grandmother's. Definitely a keeper.

In my mom's family version from Finland, the Sandbakkels were filled with a pecan and brown sugar combination so they were almost like mini pecan pies. However, I can't find the recipe anywhere.

I just got done making a test batch of two, and they are delicious!!! The only problem I had was getting them thin enough & removing from tins. Of course my tins were my gramdma's so they're probably over 60 years old!
