DIRECTIONS

  • These ingredients are the same as for cinnamon rolls, follow the same directions.
  • Add the saffron to the liquid and mix.
  • Add the egg as the dough is kneaded.
  • Take a piece of dough; roll it out into a long string, thick as your finger and about 4-5 in (10-12 cm) long.
  • Roll up both ends in opposite circles until they meet about midway.
  • Place a raisin into the center of each circle.
  • Let the "lussekatt"'s rise about 30-40 min in a nondrafty area.
  • My grandmother always put a warm towel over the dough to help it to rise faster.
  • Baste with whipped egg.
  • Bake in 420-440 °F (200-225 °C), or until golden brown.
  • Not sure how many this will serve, grandmothers recipes never had that information written down.
