Pytt i panna

Breakfast: Missed
Lunch: Pytt I panna (fried potato and lightly smoked sausage)
Dinner: Pasta, soy bean and broccoli soup
Baking/sweets: Gingerbread scones, potato bread, quick oat sweets

Lunch was a simple dish - pytt i panna. It is shallow fried diced potato, sausage, other meats and onion. It’s a nice comfort food and the relatively high fat content will keep you warm!

Recently I’ve noticed the proliferation of recipes for cookie dough truffles and other sweet variations using cookie dough. All Day I Dream About Food has a lovely and very appetizing recipe for peanut butter cookie dough truffles. When I make cookies I save the extra dough and it usually ‘mysteriously’ disappears. I never said this to anyone, silently questioning my palate for loving cookie dough. The increasing popularity and open public discussion of cookie dough gives me a sense of relief. I am normal!

In November 2010 I blogged about no bake chocolate oat squares. No bake chocolate oat squares is in fact cookie dough, different name, same thing. And the popular Swedish chocolate balls (chokladbollar) can be baked, producing a very nice chocolate oat cookie, though it is not marketed as cookie dough. In practice it is. The chokladbollar comes coated in chocolate or coconut flakes, so its chocolate oat cookie dough praline or truffle.

Cookie dough is extremely tasty and environmentally friendly since there is no need to bake!
