Cook in the oven, preheated to 180 degrees, 10-15 minutes.The Swedes have a whole cult of gatherings with a cup of coffee and sweets - called Fika [ffikaka]: to have coffee means coffee as an occasion for social activity. It combines a coffee break, a light snack between meals – in the company of colleagues, friends, family or in solitude, as you want. This is a legitimate reason to take a break from work and spend time with pleasure.Previously, 7 pies with different fillings were served for the traditional "fika".Modern Swedes have cinnamon buns, cakes, cookies of various varieties and even sandwiches at the peak of popularity. It is not surprising, the population of the country is among the leaders in the consumption of coffee and sweets in the world.
The tradition of baking "småkakor" - small cookies-appeared in Sweden back in the 1800s. One of their varieties – the dream cookie "Drömmar" - is still very popular with the Swedes.
