How to make Swedish raspberry cookies Hallongrottor

Easy, fast, delicious and... swedish!

Today I would like to share with you the recipe of hallongrottor, which means raspberry cave in swedish.

These little biscuits are very simple and fast to bake, flavored with vanilla and filled with raspberry jam.

The key to successful hallongrottor baking is to work with some very soft butter, and whip it until it is super-soft.

One more thing: hands are your best baking tools, so I recommend you use your fingers to mix the hallongrottor’s dough.
