    This recipe is wonderful! I did change it a bit, as I can never ever follow a recipe to the T, but I like my changes. :-) I made the cookies smaller, not 2 inches long. Or should I say, my husband made them smaller. :-) He's Austrian, and Austrian cookies are minute. To me, an American, cookies should last a few bites. However, back to the recipe review - we rolled the egg-basted cookies in slivered almonds instead of sprinkling them over to make sure they stuck, and I used slivered instead of chopped to get a more delicate flavor. Lastly, I didn't sprinkle the extra sugar over. I like things less sweet.
    But all in all, I stuck to the basic dough recipe, and these are just so melt-in-your-mouth delicious that I can't stop EATING THEM! Thank you! <3

    I think these are called "Finnish sticks" over here (or "Finska pinnar" in Swedish), and I make these without all the almond as we're allergic, and it's just as good :)

    My maternal Great Grandparents came from Sweden but none of the recipes have ever been passed down. I'll be making these at Christmas for sure. Thanks for the great post and for giving back a piece of my heritage.
