Soft Chocolate Cookies
My family expects the cookie jar to be filled with home-baked goodies year-round. They don't care for nuts but can't resist chocolate. So these cake-like cookies have become their favorite.

Norway's Best Pepper Cookies
This recipe is from the Norwegian Embassy in Washington, D.C. Cookies and recipes were handed out at a cultural event that my family attended a few years ago. All Norwegian homes must serve at least 7 kinds of cookies at Christmas. This recipe is different from other pepperkaker recipes on this web site because it calls for cream and does not use eggs. So it's great for any who can't eat eggs. Enjoy!
