The goro, Norway’s “affluent” cookie, is very similar to the fattigman, or the “poor man’s cookie.” The one big difference is that the goro is baked and not fried in fat.
The goro is also prepared using a special iron to give it a distinct shape.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup butter, melted
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground cardamom
In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thoroughly blended. Mix in the cream and melted butter. Sift together the flour, cinnamon and cardamom; stir into the egg mixture. Refrigerate dough for at least an hour.
Heat goro iron and lightly coat with grease. On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into circles to fit your goro iron using a paper pattern. Place onto heated iron, close and cook, turning once, until golden. Carefully remove from the iron, and cut into thirds while still warm.
