There’s a generous amount of meringue weaved into these Finnish Meringue Cookies; just delightful! These are worthy of being on the Christmas cookie list for sure! They were a hit with my husband and son.

Vika wrote in with her aunt Vera’s recipe for these Финские Булочки (Finnish cookies). When said these meringue cookies area family favorite and made for every familyoccasion, I made it the next day (I really wanted these cookies). I’ve also heard folks refer to these as Ukrainian rose cookies probably because they kind of look like roses.

I tried to make mine prettier and more rose-like by making a second batch the next day, but don’t know if I really accomplished my goal. Oh well. They taste amazing. Now I have to figure out what to do with all these cookies. Thank you Vika and Vera!

These Cookies are Really Easy! Vika said you could even throw everything in the mixer and let it work itself out. So don’t get hung up on the steps. You’ll get a cookie dough in the end and that’s what matters.

How to Make Finnish Meringue Cookies

Preheat Oven to 350˚F
1. Using your electric mixer, cream together 14 Tbsp (1 and 3/4 sticks of unsalted butter) with 2 Tbsp sugar just until well combined.

2. Sift together 2 cups flour with 1 tsp baking soda. Add flour into butter cream along with 2 Tbsp sour cream, 2 egg yolks. Use a paddle attachment to mix until the sides of your bowl are clean and you have a formed cookie dough.

3. Use a hand mixer to beat egg whites with sugar on high speed until stiff-ish peaks form and you have meringue (aka bize). Whites at room temp take 6-7 min to beat on high speed. Cold whites take 10 minutes or more

4. Roll dough out onto a long sheet of parchment paper. Roll dough out to about 7″ by 20″ rectangle.

5. Spread the top of the dough with the meringue. Roll into a long log. Use the parchment paper as leverage to help you roll the log. It would be a giant mess without the parchment paper; believe me. Parchment paper is cheapest at Costco by the way and I bake everything on it!

6.Slice the cookie log into 1/2″ rounds and arrange them on the parchment paper. the meringue pushed out more on one side of each circle as I cut the dough so I put this side up. Keep them about 1/2″ to 1″ apart. This part gets a little messy but the parchment paper is awesome for containing this mess!

7. Bake at 350˚F for 15 -17 minutes or until cookies and meringue are golden and beginning to brown around the bases. Mine baked about 17 minutes (but not all ovens are created equal). Remove from oven and cool to room temp on a wire rack; keeping them on the parchment paper (you’ll want to dust them with powdered sugar and the parchment will continue to contain the mess)
