Warm the kitchen and yourself with this baked roll that is filled with spices, like cardamom, to ward off the winter chills.
By Sylvia Fountaine
In winter when temperatures drop to bone chilling degrees, warmth can often be found in the kitchen. During the cold months, I find myself gravitating towards the warming the spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, curry, white pepper and cardamom, which generally get pushed to back of the cupboard during the summer months.
But it is cardamom that holds my heart, keeping it warm on the coldest of days, not only for its flavor, but through the memories it brings. It is one of the first spices I remember tasting as a child.
This recipe for Finnish Cardamom Rolls is similar to my mother’s Finnish Pulla recipe, but instead of making a big braided loaf, the dough is rolled and cut into smaller rolls, perfect for company and easily stored away in the freezer. For the traditional braided loaf recipe, and more on my mother and her homeland, Finland, visit this post, Pulla for Lea.Print
