Comfort Food Sunday- Cookbook review

Swedish Cakes and Cookies

by Melody Favish

This is a cookbook that has a place in every one's collection. First of all it's beautiful. The end papers are filled with samples of the goodness inside. It is loaded with color photos throughout. In reading the introduction we discover the recipes were compiled from a newspaper contest in 1945! The recipes have been added to through the years and modern appliance times added. I baked several of the cookie recipes over winter break because I bought this huge can of almond slices at the nut store. The Swedish seem to love using almonds in their cookies, so it worked out well! Put this one on your wish won't be disappointed.

  1. will have to check this out, in my eons ago childhood, went to a swedish church where they would make this cake/bread that was braided and sort of perfect with strong coffee. Wonder if it's in the book...
