“These cookies are very delicate and melt in your mouth. The name is a bid odd, it is a Danish cookie but directly translated called 'Finnish Bread'. The dough needs to rest for at least one hour which is not included in the prep time. Note - The dough can be frozen for easy planning UPDATE: After Mersaydees review I would like to add that whole raw alminds can be easily skinned/blanched if placed in very hot water for 2 min. This loosens the skin and make it pop off without effort”
125 cookies

  • 3 34 cups all-purpose flour (375 g)
  • 12 cup sugar (85 g)
