Swedish Sandwich Cookies (Singoalla & Ballerina)

These are two of the most popular cookies in Sweden made by Göteborgs kex (IKEA sells copycat versions, too). My cookies may not be identical, but pretty close in flavor and consistency. Yum!!

Swedish Ginger Snaps (Pepparkakor)

This recipe is absolutely amazing! The dough is so incredibly easy to work with and the cookies come out really flavorful and crisp.

Lussekatter (Swedish Saffron Buns)

Vetebröd (Swedish Sweet Bread) with saffron and raisins is baked for advent, Lucia and Christmas. There are many different shapes, but the most common is the S-shaped lussekatt or julgalt.

Simple Panettone

I was first introduced to this traditional Italian Christmas treat in the USA, but now it can be found in Swedish stores as well. My recipe comprises Swedish sweet bread dough flavored with citrus and dried fruit. It is remarkably similar to authentic Panettone in both flavor and looks.

Light & Moist Cornbread

This cornbread is one of the reasons why chili is so popular at our house. It took some time to get it right, since we find many recipes are either too sweet or too dry. This strikes the perfect balance between traditional cornbread and moist, airy cake.

Vetebröd (Swedish Sweet Bread)

This dough is used for most Swedish buns and coffee cakes. Sweet enough on its own with a delicious hint of cardamom and crunchy pearl sugar on top, or filled with nut paste, pastry cream, jam and more. I use them for both Swedish and American cinnamon rolls.
