A unique bread with a sweet flavor that makes a wonderful holiday gift! It takes about 4 hours to make, so allow yourself plenty of time.
These Swedish thumbprint cookies are proof that just a few ingredients are all you need for delicious treats.
Finnish Kropser (Baked Pancakes)
This delicious bar is a treat that can be served for breakfast or with tea. Serve with syrup, jelly or honey.
Swedish Nuts II
I make these wonderful sweet nuts using pecans every year for Christmas. They are a true delight, especially if you are a lover of nuts. If pecans aren't your forte, substitute walnuts. Happy Holidays!
Danish Almond Puff
My mom used to make this Almond Puff every year for Christmas. It is very elegant and pretty--and surprisingly easy to make. I almost always have every ingredient already in my cupboard. I made it myself for the first time and my husband loved it. I'm planning to make it for his mom when she comes to visit. This is a fun one to share.
Danish Christmas Red Cabbage
In Denmark it is traditional to serve a cooked pickled red cabbage for the Christmas Eve dinner. This is my mother's, and it is so easy to make and will be a great sidedish to any roast duck, turkey or goose. When reheating, I like to add a tablespoon of black currant jam to enhance the flavor.
Norwegian Pancakes - Pannekaken
My Norwegian grandmother made this for us as a treat, and it continues to be a favorite my mother makes for my kids. Very easy and versatile. Serve rolled like a crepe with syrup or jam. Can also be a dessert stuffed with a sweetened cream cheese and lingon berry mixture.
Swedish Meatballs (Svenska Kottbullar)
Baked seasoned beef and pork meatballs served with brown sour cream gravy.
Easy Swedish Meatball Sauce
An easy Swedish meatball sauce with frozen meatballs is comfort food at its best.
