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. The dough is made from egg yolks, egg whites, sugar, cream, cognac, cinnamon, cardamom, and flour. It's from the ingredients they get their name, the joke is that they were so expensive to make that they would leave you a poor man.
As immigrants from Norway over time forgot reading and writing Norwegian, the spoken word "fattigmannsbakkels" was transcribed into a "sound-alike", and the cookie is now also known as Futimonbuckles. The name may suit the cookies well, because of the buckled appearance they have.
