Brune Kaker (Updated LeCompte Family Recipe)

I've done a bit of toying with the recipe that was handed down to me from two generations back. There's nothing substantially different about my version, just working around the stuff that you might not find at your local store.

1 c. (two sticks) butter
1 c. sugar
2 T. corn syrup
2 c. (9 1/4 oz.) flour
1 t. vanilla
1 t. baking soda
Cream butter and sugar together. Add other ingredients. Make into 4-6 rolls 1" wide and bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 325 degrees or until golden brown. Cut into diagonal slices, about 3/4" wide. Just like grilled cheese sandwiches, these taste better when cut diagonally.
