  1. please please PLEASE make the lemon Singoalla cookies!! where i live they have stopped selling them in my ikea for some reason and they were a favorite! i desperately want to bake them!!

      1. thank you so much! i think they’re similar to the raspberry one but not sure since ive never had the raspberry kind! hope you’ll have better luck in finding them because i cannot!! 🤎🤎

          1. i was thinking a lemon curd but it was such a strange texture which is why i wasn’t sure if it was curd or not! it was sort of gummy/chewy! i was wondering if it was curd with maybe gelatin added to it? thank you for all your replies by the way!!
