There’s a generous amount of meringue weaved into these Finnish cookies; just delightful! These are worthy of being on the Christmas cookie list for sure! They were a hit with my husband and son. Vika wrote in with her aunt Vera’s recipe for these Финские Булочки (Finnish cookies). When she told me that it’s a family favorite and made for every family occasion, I made it the next day (I really wanted these cookies). I’ve also heard folks refer to these as Ukrainian rose cookies probably because they kind of look like roses. I tried to make mine prettier and more rose-like by making a second batch the next day, but don’t know if I really accomplished my goal. Oh well. They taste amazing. Now I have to figure out what to do with all these cookies. Thank you Vika and Vera!
