Fattigmann (English: poor man), also known as Fattigmann Bakkels (English: poor man pastry), are a type of Norwegian fried-dough cookie. They are also eaten in the areas of North America where Scandinavians settled during the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century.[1][2] The dough is made from egg yolks, egg whites, sugar, cream, cognac, cinnamon, cardamom, and flour.[3][4]
