Lussekatt

 December 13th
Santa Lucia & My Morfar's Birthday
Morfar, Mormor, Mom - Summer 2007
It's coming up...
In honor of Santa Lucia...
I baked these...
With this wonderful lady...
heather "pensling" the lussekatt
and they were tasty...
I'm always afraid my Lucia buns won't rise, that I'll mess up the yeast.
But they did, and they nice, tasty and fluffy...
delicious with hot chocolate, or for breakfast or dessert or a snack... :)
 for those of you wondering WHY they're special: they are made w/a saffron, an expensive, but delightful spice that makes the buns a golden color. maybe i'll tranlsate the recipe from swedish some day and post it on the blog, until then, the pictures will have to suffice
{note: heather, i'll get you the recipe even if it doesn't end up on the blog, thanks for baking w/me}
 miss you morfar... thanks for teaching me the art of baking... you would be proud
