"I was looking for something new to bake for Christmas and this recipe caught my eye because my husband’s family is Swedish. So I tried making them. They were kind of puttsy to make but they turned out pretty good. I used mint and strawberry jelly. The mint was better than I expected. The almond-flavored frosting was the perfect finish touch."
