"Scandinavian Sweet Treats," in the popular recipe-card file size stocking-stuffer format, includes recipes and notes about the best of Scandinavian coffee and desserts and was inspired by the Swedish love of coffee and sweets. Scandinavian hospitality is shown to a guest with a variety of cookies, pastries, and cakes served at the coffee table. In addition to the recipes, this book also contains memories shared by Scandinavian folks on the tradition of Afternoon Coffee in Norway, a Danish coffee table, memories of a Finnish coffee table, remembering Icelandic sweet treats, and a summer day picnic in Sweden. The stories are charming and remind us of a time that was less hectic than our own.
