Anyway. I still need to make the lussekatter and the apple hazelnut bread, but the lussekatter are some thing I need to for Santa Lucia Day itself. They are their own ritual. I may decide to make another kind or two of cookies, or I may not. We did all the things besides the lussekatter that I absolutely have to have this year, and we had a good time, and that is the true meaning of Cookie Day.
Final list for yesterday: pepparkakor, strawberry shortbreads, peanut butter kisses, pretzel hugs, turtles, sea salt caramels, rum balls for matastas, peanut butter fudge for Mike. And I had already done the brun brods. I can think of other things I might choose to do, but I also might not.
