Fatigman, Fatigman, Where Can You Be?

I've been searching for a recipe for fatigman cookies. They're deep-fried Swedish (and Norwegian) cookies we used to make with my mother when we were kids.
Although I've managed to find lots of mention of them online, I haven't found a single recipe.
Any help out there?
Don't know if you're still looking. Here is my Norwegian grandmother's recipe:
Fatigman (Grandma’s) small recipe
3 whole eggs + 3 egg yolks
2 heaping Tbsp sugar for each egg (10)
1 Tbsp whipping cream for each egg (6)
2 Tbsp butter for each egg (1 ½ cubes)
2 tsp vanilla
(2 Tbsp brandy or rum if wanted)
2 tsp cardamom
½ tsp salt
4 cups flour (sift after measuring)
enough to make stiff dough
Cream sugar and butter, add slightly beaten eggs and
yolks, then cream, vanilla, and last, dry ingredients.
Let stand about 2 hrs. in icebox. Use flour to roll out.
(Cut into diamonds, slit in middle, slip end through
slit and pull to form twist )
Fry in shortening (Crisco).
