Norwegian skolebrød – possibly the tastiest pastry ever. This is the dough recipe that I've found works best in this part of the world, but I use all-purpose flour. (Come on, it's a treat!) I use homemade vaniljekrem to fill them, but that's a different thing altogether.

On any celebration table in Norway you can always find a Norwegian layer cake (bløtkake).  A layer cake is just berries and cream between layers of vanilla sponge.  There are two main types of layer cakes that are particularly used for Norwegian Constitution Day – Cream Cake and Marzipan Cake.  The Marzipan and Cream cakes are basically the same except one uses marzipan as a covering and the other cream.

Traditional Scandinavian recipes for layer cakes. Add Grand Marnier to the bottom layer of sponge cake.

Norwegian Goro Cookies

Norwegian Goro cookies, prepared on a special cookie press and flavored with cardamom, are a cross between a cracker, a cookie, and a waffle.

Ribbe, Norwegian pork ribs, are distinct because of the way the rind is prepared. The rind is scored to make a tiny grid pattern, and rubbed with salt before the meat is cooked. The ribs are then roasted in a pan with a rack, wrapped in tin foil. The pan is filled with water to help steam and soften the rind.
