I made these pillowy cinnamon cookies several weeks ago during a gloomy day. They are a soft humble cookie. No flashy ingredients or chocolate falling out. Just a good butter dough, some cardamom, and a whole lot of cinnamon.
I found the recipe in The Great Scandinavian Baking Book by Beatrice Ojakangas. I really do want to make everything in the book. There are so many great looking recipes that I’m actually having a hard time deciding what to make!
This only the second item I’ve baked from this book and will not be the last. Oh danishes… I will make you! Sometimes though you just need something simple. Like this cookie. Soft and cinnamony.
Cinnamony cookie pillows. Or as they are known in Sweeden, Kanelkakor.
