Fat Tuesday's pastry

Tuesday this week was the day when we eat this pastry and we call it "semla". They are filled with almond paste and cream and on the top we powder them with icing sugar. It's an old tradition connected to the eating before the Lent. The photo above was from last year when we visited my parents house and my mother made those delicious rolls. This year my parents came and visited us at the lake house this special Tuesday and brought rolls, almond paste and cream! We ate them that day and lucky us, we had some left on Wednesday when we went out on a trip with the snow mobiles.

They doesn't look as beautiful as the photo from last year. But out there by the fireside, together with coffee or hot chocolate, with the whole family, nothing could be better.
