"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.
