Yay for Gjetost!!! One of my favorite ingredients make chocolate cookies even better;)

Not really a cheese, and looks and tastes a bit like a caramel. What exactly is gjetost? It’s just delicious i guess.


¾ lb Dark Chocolate

3 cups All Purpose Flour

1 Tbsp Baking Powder

½ tsp Salt

¾ cup Butter

2 cups Light Brown Sugar

½ cup Corn Syrup 

1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract

3 Eggs

1 cup Gjetost, grated

Powdered Sugar for rolling dough

Melt the chocolate in microwave, stirring several times while melting. Set aside.

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and gjetost. Careful to not let the gjetost clump. set aside.

Cream butter with sugar and corn syrup in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment.

Scrape down and add vanilla extract and eggs one at a time. Mix until fully incorporated

While mixer is running, stream in melted chocolate.

Add dries and mix until just combines

Scoop into portions and chill for 3 hours. Roll in powdered sugar before baking.
