I have to show you this very special little... well, what is it? A cake? A cookie? I'm not sure. It's called a "mumma", and it's a specialty at bakery shop Grillska Huset in Stockholm Old Town. It's buttery and almondy, very dense, and rolled in cardamom sugar. Extremely rich, which explains the small size, but it's one of the yummiest baked goods I've come across.
I have no idea how to make it, the recipe seems well-guarded. It's somewhat like the inside of a mazarin, so perhaps I can try to replicate it... Or I'll just have to enjoy it when I'm in the neighborhood. Either way, make sure you get one if you're in Old Town!
