Norwegian Chocolate Chip Cookies

My best friend, Amber, taught me how to make these cookies. They are a great mash-up of a sugar and chocolate chip cookie. A pizza cutter is the best tool for cutting into slices after baking. —Bonnie Brien, Surprise, Arizona

  • Makes
    5 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/3 cups plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1-1/3 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour and baking powder; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Divide dough into 4 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 15-in. rope. Place 2 ropes 4 in. apart on a parchment paper-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan; flatten each with a fork to 1/4-in. thickness. Mix cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle about 2 teaspoons mixture over each rectangle. Repeat with remaining ropes.
  • Bake 15-17 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool on pans 2 minutes; immediately cut each rectangle into 1-in. slices. Remove to wire racks to cool.

    Followed the recipe exactly (using unsalted butter). The cookies taste terrible. Wondering if the recipe was supposed to include salt (or salted butter)? Would not recommend this recipe as is.

    Can i use Almond Flour in place of the regular flour so that the carbs are much lower?

    Super easy to make. I just rolled the 4 portions into a 15 inch rope, flattened with my fingers to 1/4 inch thick, then used a fork dipped into flour to make indents. This held the cinnamon sugar in place. It makes a lot without shifting trays in and out of an oven-just 2 pans in- 15 min later- cookies. Kind of a cross between a butter cookie, a snickerdoodle and a chocolate chip cookie. If you cut on a diagonal, it is a pretty effect

    Love the mash up of a sugar cookie and a chocolate chip cookie! Fun to make and delicious too.
