Semlor för Fettisdagen

Another Swedish tradition in good stuff to eat. 
Semlor, which are cardamom scented buns filled with almond paste and whipped cream. 

Originally they were only eaten on "fettisdagen" (Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday), the day before the beginning of Lent. This year fettisdagen is the 9th of February or one week from today. Nowadays in Sweden they are popular from Christmas to Easter. But never after Easter. The recipe can be found at
