Finally it’s December and Christmas time!! We have covered Danish Christmas pastries in the form of cookies earlier so now it is time to see what is up in Finland. There are some pastries (and one dessert) that we eat during Christmas time. Take a look!
Joulutorttu = Christmas tart
When do we eat? When nights are getting darker and Christmas songs are all over town.
Piparkakku = Gingerbread
When do we eat? Usually we bake these at the same time than Christmas tarts (and normally from ready-made dough :D)
Maustekakku = Cake of spices
When do we eat? At Christmas eve with coffee and of course couple days later as long as there is left overs.
Luumurahka = Plum quark
When do we eat? At Christmas eve as a dessert.
