Hovdessert is a Swedish meringue cookie that I first read about in my ancient copy of the Time and Life Cooking of Scandinavia. In Swedish, hov means royal and hoof.  This cookie is supposedly named for the court (think Pavlova), yet it looks very hoof like (at least mine do). The Chocolate Balsamic Sauce mimics a hard sauce and balances the sweet cookies with a bit of tart.
