Bron Grate Cookie Recipe
I’ve shared a few of my Grandma Kae’s best cookie recipes here on NoBiggie, and I’m happy to share another favorite. Bron Grate’ is a Norwegian cookie. It’s sort of like a mix between a snickerdoodle and a ginger snap, so if you like those two, then you’ll love this one.
We made them into ice cream sandwiches over the weekend, and they were delish! They taste so good with vanilla ice cream!
Once your cookie dough is ready, you’ll need to get a plate of sugar (with a pinch of salt) ready and the unbeaten egg white. You’ll dip each little cookie dough ball in the egg white and then roll in the sugar, until well coated.
You should be able to see the sugar crystals on the cookie dough like this.
As you can see the cookies spread quite a bit while baking. Using a silpat will help them not spread quite as much.
I got 24 cookies from this recipe. I guess you could get more depending on the size of cookie you make.
Or you can get 12 delicious ice cream sandwiches! Yum! They’re so good!
Bron Grate Cookie recipe
Bron Grate is a Norwegian cookie similar to a snickerdoodle with the sugar on the outside of the cookie.
- 1 cup butter softened (two sticks)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- pinch salt
- 1 egg separated
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 2 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350.
In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together.
Dissolve the baking soda into the egg yolk. Add the egg yolk, baking soda mixture, cinnamon and molasses to the butter and sugar.
Gradually add in flour until well combined.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out the cookie dough. Gently roll the ball of cookie dough in the unbeaten egg white and then roll in a plate of the extra sugar plus a pinch of salt. Continue this process until you have filled one cookie sheet with 12. Bake for 13 minutes.
Let cool on the cookie sheet they baked on covered with parchment paper and a hand towel. Recipe makes 2 dozen cookies.
Notes - I baked these on a silpat. You could also bake them on parchment sheets, but I have heard that cookies tend to spread less on a silpat, so this is what I prefer to bake on for this recipe.
