While I was home for my Nana’s 90th birthday, my mom offered me to go through her cookie cutters since my Halloween cookie cutters turned out to be too big…and to my delight, she said I could take…
THE SAWA 2000!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Turns out they make these puppies now for less than $12, but hey…free is better! 🙂 The entire set was in great condition, and it even had the original recipe book. So I decided to use one of their recipes: Uppakra. Uppakra is a sweedish cookie made partially with potato flour, and is traditionally covered with an egg wash, sugar, and ground almonds. I put my own twist on this recipe, as you’ll see below.
I ended up adding an egg to my recipe and a few tablespoons of oil because the flour/butter ratio was a bit off. If you have the same problem, I’d recommend adding veggie oil until the cookie dough comes together.
Then on top of the egg wash, I put a large chocolate chip in the center of my cookies. Too cute! 🙂
And yes…they actually taste like potatoes. So eat up!
