My family makes them too! They have been passed down from generation to generation. What is crazy is my great grandma's last name is Larsen also... We all live in Minnesota too. Just thought that was ironic. We really dont have much info on them as well... Let me know if you find anything out. ;)

Our family has made these Krokonner (Christmas Bridges) cookies for years.
The recipe came down through Great-grandma whose maiden name was Larson.
I think I remember her saying they were Danish.I do know they are from one
of the Scandinavian countries.They are curved sugar cookies, baked on a
special curved pan (like half of a tube)-someone once said they used to be
baked on half pieces of stovepipe or metal gutter pipes. Anyway, I'm
trying to find out: what does the name Krokonner mean, which country are
they from, what are any traditions regarding these cookies.....and any
other info on these cookies you may be able to share. Thanks!

I am also trying to get more info on these great cookies. We have had them for years and this summer found some professional pans that don't fit in my oven. I have asked around but most people don't know or have not heard of them. My sister and I will keep making them as long as health holds. Last year my grandchildren helped and we had a great time. I also live in MN. and grew up in Stillwater
