LSFS Cookies

LSFS cookies (Large Swedish Furniture Store Cookies) are one of my favorite cookies. Going to the food section of a LSFS is the best part about furniture-shopping, right? Not just because of the cookies, but also because it is the only place in Germany where you can buy Hjortron-Sylt, cloudberry-jam that is. But since the big idea behind the LSFS is that you are supposed to assemble 100 single pieces to look like the bookshelf you fell for in the cataloge, why not try to assemble the LSFS cookies yourself, too? I was inpsired by her recipe, but changed things a little bit!

LSFS cookies

100 gr of butter
70 gr of brown sugar
1 tbs of vanilla sugar
pinch of salt
1 egg
75 gr of quick oats
125 gr of wholegrain oats
30 gr of flour
1 tsp of baking powder
dark chocolate

Preheat your oven at 200 °C. Melt the butter with the brown sugar and the vanilla sugar in a pan. Add the salt. Let cool of a short while. Mix the egg with all the other ingredients except the chocolate and throw the whole thing into the melted butter and sugar mix. Portion the dough with teaspoons and place little heaps of dough on a baking sheet. Careful, cause the heaps will spread while baking! Bake the cookies for about 10-15 minutes until they have a nice caramelized color. Let them cool of and sprinkle them with dark, melted chocolate.
The cookies sort of taste like crunchy muesli, which is why they go well together with a glass of milk!
This recipe was inspired by her recipe.


  1. I like these cookies very much,indeed I Kan Eat A lot of them!

  2. I can hardly wait for our LSFS to be opened at the end of fall next year here in Denver. Construction work is progressing very rapidly; very exciting. In the meantime I will bake some of your cookies. Thanks!

  3. hehe, I like the intro to this. I usually buy chocolate and or hot dogs from the LSFS so it seems like Ive been missing out on something.

  4. Those cookies are exceedingly good... There has to be some motivation for going to those shops. Speaking of which. I MUST go tomorrow. I keep putting it off...

  5. These look delicious!! I am not much of a cook, more a Jamie Oliver recipe REcooker.

    But this looks as if I can make it :) Great blog!

  6. @Juhe: haha, very witty!

    @my kitchen in the rockies: yeah for a nea LSFS! Hope they also have food sections in the US. In Sweden, they don't (apart from the hotdog stand)!

    @Shirin: Definitely! Next time, you should get some cookies (and of course hjortron sylt, which is the real insider tasty with goat cheese!)

    @foodie in Berlin: Remember the old LSFS-rule: Only buy the things on your shopping list! (...and those candles...and these napkins...oh, and one of those glases over there... and yeah, definitely gift wrapping... and...)

    @MarcoBerlin: Thanks! Yeah, these are really easy, so they'd be a great pick to impress girlfriends/moms/mother-in-laws/ sisters-in-laws/grannies!
