    winkki's Note:

    The Swedish Country Inn is a B&B in Lindsborg, Kansas..."Little Sweden USA." A town too small to have a stoplight, with cobblestone streets and Dala horses adorning all the houses, this hamlet is the heart of Swedish Kansas pioneer history and host to a huge biannual Swedish festival that draws thousands. How do I know? I went to college in that tiny town (our mascot was the Swede, go figure!). My mother often stayed at the Swedish Country Inn when she came to visit and became absolutely addicted to their rusks (kind of the Swedish answer to biscotti; dunk these in your coffee rather than eating them like biscuits). Even 15 years later, if I was anywhere in the area I would stop and pick some up for least until I found the recipe for myself! :o)

      Really enjoyed these with coffee. Not difficult to make, just a long wait with the yummy smell filling the house.
