    These Swedish biscuits are known as Rosenmunnar in Swedin. I like to use strawberry jam but you can use any flavour of jam you like.

    These are the easiest biscuits I have ever made. In Sweden, they're known as brunscrackers. You can add 2 tablespoons of cocoa to the flour if you fancy a chocolate version. The only problem I have with them is you can't eat just one!

    In Denmark it is traditional to serve a cooked pickled red cabbage for the Christmas Eve dinner. This is my mum's, and it is so easy to make and will be a great side dish to any roast duck, turkey or goose. When reheating, I like to add a tablespoon of black currant jam to enhance the flavour.

    This is a fail-safe recipe for rich, buttery and flaky pastries. These are different to croissants and can be filled with your favourite preserves, or even chocolate if desired.
