Many heavier foods are traditional to the celebration of New Year's Eve inScandinavian countries. A favorite dinner is roast beef, baked potatoes, Risgrynsgröt (rice porridge), Lefse, and Kringler.


Beat the eggs and add a bit of the cream. Stir in the sugar and the butter which has been melted. Whip the rest of the cream until stiff and add. Sift the flour with the baking powder and stir into the first mixture to make a soft dough. Chill in the refrigerator. Roll the dough out thin, cut into strips, and shape into rings. Bake on a greased and floured tin at 350° F. for about ten minutes or until light brown.
