Christmas on RecipeReminiscing

As I have done the two last years I will post nothing but Christmas oriented recipes from November 24. to December 24. In 2016 I must admit I was a little lazy and just repeated to recipes from 2015. There will be no such repeats this year, all new recipes. Cookies, cakes, sweets, desserts, dinners and side dishes all in the best Scandinavian traditions. I hope you will enjoy this tour of Nordic Christmas goodies – Ted
