" S "

"Lussekatter" - Navnet kommer av S-formen - etter kattehalen.
Ok - Må innrømme at det beste med tradisjonelle safranboller er fargen.
Den gyldne lyse gule fargen lyser opp en mørk vinter morgen.

Ok - must admit what I like most about these buns are the color.
The golden yellow color will brighten any dark winter morning.
Traditionally it is served on St. Lucia December 13th.
