  1. Oh! The mustikkapiirakka looks so delicious and easy. Mormor et al will be full of berry goodness once they delve into it. Thank you for introducing it to us. Does Jane get a piece?

    • The humans ate their rather larger pie with whipped cream, but the Quimper Hittys had theirs unadorned, everyone agreed it was very tasty…and Jane fell asleep in the shade with her book all afternoon, which disappointed her, she was hoping to get a little further along in her book before having to go back to work.

  2. Mormor is the perfect Mormor. I adore her smile and the smile lines she has around her eyes. Her rolling pin is wonderful…so authentic as though she has used it since her younger years…and her dessert looks scrumptious…I can almost smell the heavenly aroma all across the miles.

    • Mormor was glad that the Quimper Hittty kitchen had such a substantial rolling pin, she has a penchant for baking cookies (and pie)…cardamom has such an evocative smell I am not surprised you could (almost) smell Mormor’s pie!
