"It's a keeper!"
Scandinavians are known for their warm hospitality, welcoming family and friends into their homes with coffee and baked goods. Drinking coffee is almost the national pastime, and delicious breads and cookies are the perfect accompaniments.
"Coffee tables" are a popular means of celebration, loaded with hearty breads, delicate sweets like Desert Sand Cookies, and whipped cream cakes such as Strawberries and Cream Cake. Simple fruit tarts bring the freshness of spring to the festivities.
Offering more than forty recipes, Scandinavian Classic Baking covers a wide range of treats, from simple cookies and muffins to elaborate princess cakes. Carefully written directions and attention to detail guarantee success for both novice and experienced bakers. These are recipes to be cherished for generations.

For those new to using yeast (like me!), I would still look on the 'net before trying the Cinnamon Rolls or Danish Almond Tea Ring, because it's hard to know exactly how best to use the yeast without some practice (i.e. my dough will not rise unless in the oven on the lowest setting). However, whoever is a pro with yeast will have no problems!
Short tip: I added double the filling to the Cinnamon Rolls - otherwise they are too dry to get the real Cinnabon flavour! ;)
I think this is a perfect collection of nordic baked goods, the presentation is beautiful, most recipes are pretty easy and straight-forward and it's also fun to read through the short history and stories provided. Moreover, this is the only Scandinavian baking book where I've seen every recipe with a picture, so for visual cooks this is spot on. Would also highly recommend as a gift to anyone who enjoys baking.
Some of the recipes you will find in this cookbook include:
Desert Sand Cookies
Swedish Almond Rusk
I returned this book, as the book did not offer anything new when it came to recipes. If I were starting out collecting Scandinavian cookbooks, I would purchase and keep this cookbook.
Recommend with caveats given.
There are some editing problems but the beautiful pictures and just the warm feeling or nostalgic memories I got from looking at it and trying some of the recipes made it a great book to own and to give for a gift.
