Swedish Semla

A Semla is a wheat flour bun filled with almond past and whipped cream.

An old tradition in Sweden is to eat Semla only once a year at Fettisdagen (Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday) which is an old Christian tradition, but some of us likes to enjoy Semlor even more often then once a year, so the bakeries usually bakes them throughout the winter season.
