Korintkakor - "currants cookies" - are very popular in Sweden. It's considered a real classic. They're really easy to make, and very tasty - essentially a shortbread studded with raisins. Try to get currants if you can, but regular raisins will do as well.
Makes about 60 cookies
250 g butter, room temperature
250 g vegetable shortening, room temperature
150 ml sugar (about 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp)
1 litre of flour (4 cups)
2 tsps baking powder
100 g currants
Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Mix the butters and the sugar. Add the flour and baking powder, and add the currants. Mix together. Form small balls of dough, put on a baking sheet, and press down with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes - they should not get much color!
