Swedish Jitterbug Cookies

I’m getting my Christmas baking started, and I want to try some new cookies this year.  I’m going to post them as I bake them.  I’m trying cookies from different cookbooks.

These Swedish Jitterbug Cookies come from Swedish Cakes and Cookies by Skyhorse Publishing.  These are tasty cookies, but they are a bit messy to make.  The recipe in this book calls for one egg yolk in the dough, but you must put two egg yolks in the dough or your dough will not roll.  It’s better though because you use two egg whites for the meringue so waste not want not.

These cookies have a nice buttery shortbread taste and a sweet chewiness from the meringue.  They are addictive!
