Sweet and rich, this is a quintessential pastry of Sweden. You can divide the pastry into 8 individual tarts using 1/2 cup size tart pans with removable bottoms.

This is the recipe I have been searching for ever since our local Scandinavian bakery closed down. The smell while making it is heavenly. A slice when first done is wonderful but after an hour in the refrigerator it is even better. I followed the recipe except for adding a small amount of almond extract to the glaze. Yum
