Butter shortages spread in Norway

Panic hits Norwegian homes as shortage of butter may mean no traditional Christmas cookies.

    Anyone who has ever prepared a traditional Christmas dinner knows one ingredient is crucial to culinary success - butter.

    But it is a commodity now in short supply in Norway, as the country is suffering an 'acute' shortage of the dairy product.  

    The country's entire stockpile has been consumed, causing a panic as Norwegians need butter to bake their traditional Christmas cookies.
