Recipe by Torbjorn

This is a traditional Finnish cookie recipe that originated somewhere in the countryside of Western Finland. The cookies are sweet but very dry, so be sure to have a supply of milk at hand! The recipe works well with low lactose or lactose-free butter.

  1. Mix the flour, soda and vanilla sugar.

  4. Separate the dough into flat bars.
  5. Oven cook for 10 minutes at 200°C (400°F).
