Pikkuleipienperustaikina (Finnish Butter Cookie Dough)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Amis227

Oh, yum. This is so good. I usually make this around the holidays and it's used as a base for several differant cookies such as Hindbaerkage (Danish Raspberry Ribbons), Mandelkaker (Norwegian Almond Cookies), and PahkindIeiva (Finnish Nut Logs). Or you can just cook it up as it is, and decorate with colored sugar. Posted for Zaar World Tour 05
