Sirapskakor

Mom's syrup cakes are unbeatable. These crunchy cookies are easy to make and are usually eaten at breakneck speed. These are usually made before Christmas and then frozen in smaller aluminum molds. On Christmas Eve, you pick out a mold that is allowed to thaw during the day, then it's just a matter of setting it out for the Christmas coffee.

Schackrutor

Another simple recipe made according to the classic 1-2-3 dough. The dough is halved and flavored in two different ways - one half with vanilla and the other with chocolate. Checkerboards are easier to make than you might think and will be decorative to have on the cake plate for Christmas coffee.

Gingerbread cookies

No Christmas without gingerbread. For several years I have played tricks with different types of gingerbread dough. In all recipes, the amount of spices is different, while some of them even advocate ready-made spice mix. These gingerbread cookies are of a classic cut and are both simple and tasty. Of course, it is also fun to cut out your own shapes in the gingerbread dough.

Fluffy cats

A couple of years ago, the family got together at my partner's and my house to just cook together. In addition to the gingerbread flavored cinnamon buns below, we made fluffy cats. Oh, what fun we had. Lots of funny shapes got the fluffy cats, and we probably ate half of them already during the first evening. Lussebullar for mulled wine is a given choice both for Lucia and Christmas Eve.

Rocky Road

You choose what you want in your Rocky Road. The most common is that you have marshmallows, dumle and nuts. Some have Polly in the candy, while others have it in biscuits. You can also vary the nuts between hazelnuts, almonds, cashews and pistachios. This is a classic Rocky Road recipe with colorful marshmallows.

Snowballs with lemon

Classic so-called snowballs are made with citrus. This candy is as good as anything and really easy to make. I usually flavor my snowballs with grated lemon peel. I think it tastes a bit fresher than with lime.

Bond time

Peasant cakes are classic cakes that are suitable all year round - especially at Christmas. These are made on a simple 1-2-3 dough and mixed with almonds. If you make extra dough at once, you can freeze it into rolls that you store in the freezer. Then, when you have guests over, you pick up the roll, slice it up and put it in the oven. Super smooth!

Classic cinnamon buns

This is a classic recipe with plain dough and a filling of butter, sugar and cinnamon. Spread some of the butter on the rolled out dough and sprinkle over sugar and cinnamon. I always mix together butter, sugar and cinnamon into a spreadable cream.

Spicy Christmas chocolate balls with cinnamon and mulled wine

I like to bake chocolate balls because it's so easy. Not very many ingredients are required. You also don't have to keep on fermenting and kneading. Perfect! This variant has been flavored with cinnamon, mulled wine and a hint of cardamom. Feel free to choose a non-alcoholic mulled wine if the kids are going to eat the chocolate balls.
