    FoodieFinn's Note:

    Traditional Finnish baking . Like a cinnamon bun but better! No icing, but cardamom gives these buns the oomph they desire. Make them and book your flight to Helsinki, where the national pastime of drinking coffee with pulla is available on every street. Just taste and see!

      These are great! While baking, your home will fill with the aroma of warmed cinnamon! I had only one problem with the recipe: the 400° oven temp was too hot for mine, and my first attempt came out browner than I had hoped for. I would at the very least starting checking them after the first 10 minutes or lower the temp! Also, when sprinkling on the cinnamon, I would something like a sifter to get it evenly distributed. I halved this recipe and that worked out great! Thanks, FoodieFinn! Made for Spring '09 PAC.
