Swedish for ‘hoot owl cookies’. I know that there was some suspense about whether there would or would not be hoot owl cookies, but rest assured Mom and Elizabeth, I made some.
Happily, I had some time Saturday morning to make some hoot owl rolls. I brought them to Hasse and Elja’s so we could have fresh baked cookies and also share the fun of decorating them. They were also a hit at work, where baked items usually are met with appreciation.
For me they are connected to Halloween and it is not really a good Halloween without them. It is a recipe my mom has had since I was a kid, and I could often get away without making them because my mom and Elizabeth make big batches and share them. Here in Sweden they make a nice way to share a Halloween celebration without being the only one dressed up like a transformer or zombie, which doesn’t make sense when Halloween isn’t on most people’s radar.
