The Hirshon Icelandic Air Cookies – Loftkökur

  • Total Time: 0 hours


Units Scale
  • 3 1/3 cups (750 grams) icing sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp hartshorn salt
  • 5 Tbsp extra-dark cocoa
  • 5 drops of vanilla extract (this is not traditional, but I like the slight flavor of vanilla it adds – omit if you prefer)


  1. Mix all the ingredients together and refrigerate the mixture overnight.
  2. Roll the mixture into sausages a bit thicker than your thumb and slice it every 1/4″. Then press down on the flat side with a fork to provide decoration.
  3. Place on well-greased trays and cook at 300 degrees. They are cooked when they slide on the tray when pushed, approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Watch out for the fumes when you open the oven door!
