Finnish Bread

Why are these cookies called Finnish bread? No one actually knows. We know the recipe appeared around 1900 and that the author of the cookbook traveled a lot, so maybe she got inspired by a Finnish cookie and called her creation Finnish bread 🙂

Bakers please note: These cookies are soft when hot and will only harden once cold.

Makes approximately 125


250 gram of butter
375 gram of flour
85 gram of sugar
1 egg
Pearl sugar and chopped almonds for topping


Cut the butter into smaller pieces. Mix it into the flour (it should look a bit like grated cheese when mixed good)

Mix in sugar and the egg.

Leave in fridge for 1 hour

Roll out the dough to approx. 1 ½ cm thickness. Then cut into little squares 5 cm long, and 2 cm wide.

Place the cookies on a baking tray with a bit of space between.

Beat an egg and use it to “paint” the top of the cookies and sprinkle pearl sugar and almonds on top.

Bake at 200 C for 10 min at the top of the oven.

Enjoy ❤

Merry Christmas
Love, Tea
