Call of the Wintermoon Lemon Curd Cookies!
I'm pretty sure lemon curd doesn't exist in Norway. However, if by some miracle Odin had bestowed upon the snow beaten north the gift of citrus, the vikings would have probably made these. Buried beneath the mountains of frost...are cookies!
2 sticks unsalted butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups flour
Beat butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add, and stir until well combined: egg, baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Stir in flour with a mighty sense of loathing, and chill dough for a few hours.
Preheat oven to 325-350 degrees.
Roll out dough and cut into small circles. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Sandwich with lemon curd and devour.
These are best enjoyed while basking in the self-righteousness of your own obscurity.
