Swedish Cinnamon Buns {Kanelbullar}


These cinnamon buns just scream Christmas morning! They’ll fill your home with the warm cozy smells of butter and cinnamon, and they’ll be an instant hit with everyone around your tree. Cardamom gives these buns a traditional Scandinavian flair, but if you don’t care for it, or don’t have it in your pantry, just double up on the cinnamon in its place. To have these buns at hand come Christmas morning, make the dough the night before, and give it a slow rise in the fridge overnight. Just give it an extra half hour to warm up before you proceed with rolling it out. Don’t let the lengthy instructions scare you away- this recipe is super fun to make, and everyone can lend a hand in rolling the buns. God Jul & Merry Christmas!
