It’s hard not to regret all the tender cookies we’ve missed out on by not living in Sweden, where the sit-down-and-chat-awhile coffee/cookie break (fika in Swedish) is not only welcome in the workplace, but culturally mandated!
Väl, we’re making up for lost time at Mouth HQ thanks to Swedish-born Ulrika Pettersson, who founded her Harlem-based Unna Bakery to bring the traditional and elegant cookies of her heritage to a country that could stand to slow down and savor the moment a bit.
These crispy Farmer Cookies are made with organic butter, flour, almonds and Swedish golden syrup (a thick, amber-colored sugar syrup, also known as treacle). We can’t get enough of them, especially if there’s a strong cup of kaffee nearby (for dunking!).
TIP OF THE TONGUE
If you’ve reached your coffee quota for the day, a great substitute is a cup of Dona Chai – give the bottle a quick shake, then mix equal parts concentrate with milk. Dunk away.
Organic flour (organic wheat flour, organic malted barley flour), organic butter (pasteurized organic sweet cream, salt), sugar, Swedish golden syrup (sugar beet syrup, salt), almonds (pasteurized), water bicarbonate & organic distilled white vinegar (diluted with water to 5% acidity). Comes in a 3.4 oz box. NOTE: This product was made in a facility that also processes soy, treenuts and peanuts.
