this use to be one of my absolute favorite cookies when i was younger. i remember that both my grandmas use to make them for fika when i came to see them. they are a part of the famous ”sju sorters kakor” in sweden and have a delicious carmel taste. the key to success is to be fast and to take the kolakakor out from the owen before they get to crispy, this cookies are better when they are chewy.
200g smör                                     1 cup butter
1 3/4 dl socker                              3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 msk vaniljsocker                   1 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tsk bakpulver                              2 teaspoons baking powder
2 msk ljus sirap                              2 tablespoons light syrup
5 dl vetemjöl                                2 1/5 cup flour 
1. preheat the oven to 175 degrees celsius and 350 degrees fahrenheit. 

2. mix room temperature butter with sugar, use a hand mixer. add vanilla extract, baking powder and syrup. mix it well.

3. poor the flour into the dough and mix with the hand mixer. first there will be smaller crumbles, but keep on mixing until the crumbles get bigger, that´s when the dough is done.

4. knee the dough on a baking table and split it in four parts. role the dough into four long lines and them put them on a baking sheet. (keep them fairly far apart from each other so they don´t get stuck in each other when been baked). 

5. put the kolakakor in the owen for about 13-18 minutes, they should look golden when they are done.
let the cookies cool for a bit and then cut them into oblique pieces.

if you havn´t tried these, you should, they are delicious.
