Besides being a mouth melting cookie, jitterbug is a fantastic fun dance more known as lindy-hop. And I’m not lying if I say this cookie will probably make you dance.


1 1/3 cup flour

1/3 sugar

200 gram butter

1 egg yolk


2 egg whites

4 tablespoons sugar


1 Mix flour, sugar, butter and egg yolk with your hands to a dough.

2 Leave in fridge for 30 minutes.

3 Prepare the filling by beating egg whites and sugar to a white fluffy meringue mix.

4 Roll out the dough to a rectangle and spread the meringue filling all over.

5 Fold n the edges on one of the longer sides of the rectangle and roll it to a big roll. Slice up pieces (1 cm) and put it on a baking tray.

6 Cook in oven 175 degrees for 10-15 minutes. When finished cool them down on a wire rack , while you make some coffee for your fika!
