The art of baking Swedish

21st century cookies baked from recipes passed down through the generations.  

  • Coconut oat and lemon lime cookies can now be found alongside raspberry cave, ginger snaps, brown butter, and 2017 Great Taste award-winners vanilla dream and cardamom crisp.
  • Baking is both science and art. As most home bakers know, some understanding of how ingredients create structure, density and taste is key. Do you want your cookie chewy, crispy, sweet or salty? Practice makes perfect.

  • Ulrika Pettersson, founder of Unna Bakery, bakes with recipes that have been handed down through the generations. Cookies are packaged in boxes of eight, 7 oz bags, or grab-and-go two-packs.
  • A few cookies we’ve tried offer a combination of all these good things at the New York based Unna Bakery. The 100% female owned bakery, launched in Harlem in 2015, now has items available at 200 stores across the U.S. Its cookies are pricey but will take you back to a different time when all-natural, non-GMO ingredients were the only norm for fika time. Unna’s founder, Ulrika Pettersson, recently added coconut oat and lemon lime to her selection of classic cookie varieties that meets the magic number for a traditional “kafferep” (getting together to enjoy a chat, coffee and cookies) with just the right amount of cookies: seven - not too many, not too few.
