Kransekake

Today I am sharing my version of a Kransekake. A Kransekake is traditionally a Scandinavian cake served during weddings, birthdays, graduations and on holiday banquet tables. It is traditionally made from almonds, powdered sugar and egg whites. I have not tried the traditional recipe but hoping to in the future. The traditional version is gluten free too!

I purchased these cookie cutters from Williams Sonoma many years ago. I simply made my favorite gingerbread cookie recipe which makes a ton of cookies, and used the 10 star shaped cookie cutters to create my version of the Kransekake. I used a powdered sugar icing to hold each cookie to the next and added some icing around the edges and added sugar pearls as well. It makes for a beautiful presentation on any dessert table! ENJOY!
