finnish pastries.

while I was eating my delicious laskiaispulla - I thought about making a chart about my favourite finnish pastries. after some sketching and scanning my chart is ready to be shared.
my 10 favourite finnish pastries:

click on each of the finnish names to read the recipe - see list below.

1. Korvapuusti - cinnamon roll
2. Voisilmäpulla - butter eye bun
3. Piparkakut - ginger cookies
4. Joulutorttu - christmas tart
5. Runebergintorttu - Runeberg's cake
6. Laskiaispulla - shrove tuesday bun
7. Tippaleipä - Vappufinnish doughnut
8. Munkkirinkilät - doughnut
9. Pannukakku - oven pancake
10. Tiikerikakku - tiger cake
finnish pastries are all delicious: some of them are made to celebrate a specific occasion (Runebergintorttu or Tippaleipä) - some others I can find every morning even at my local supermarket (Korvapuusti or Voisilmäpulla). I cannot go one day without having one of these sweet treats!

    1. grazie Emi :-)
      purtroppo quando arriverai non credo si potranno trovare tutti: la torta di Runeberg si trova a inizio febbraio, mentre la la laskiaispulla in questo periodo. se sarai fortunata potremo trovare già i dolci del primo maggio, invece. e ovviamente krovapuusti, voipulla, munkki, pannukakku e tiikerikakku ;-)
      i piipari e le joulutorttu potremmo anche farli, ma sarebbero troppo natalizi per aprile ;-)

      yes, northern europe baked sweets tend to be similar in many ways - especially when it comes down to the use of cinnamon and cardamom.
