Cardamom Rolls

I've started baking from a charming cookbook called Swedish Cakes and Cookies. It was a Christmas gift from Giles to Bella last year and is full of wonderful things. 

These are Cardamom Rolls. Cardamom is not a spice I've used much of--it's so expensive! But I got some at an ethnic market for a reasonable price and used a lot of it in these beauties!

There's cardamom in the dough, and then the filling is almond paste, butter, and more cardamom. So fragrant.

Thats funny! I got that very same book from a swedish friend last august as a wedding present! I haven´t had a chance to try any recipe yet,but my husband is most eagerly anticipating it :-) Glad to know the cardamom rolls are a good place to start!

They sound amazing. I'm surprised that cinnamon (or cardamom) rolls haven't taken off in Australia, they look so good! I don't suppose you know of a good gluten and dairy free recipe...?

It was cardamom that led me to purchase a mortal and pestle. Fresh ground cardamom is like nothing else!
Now I use the mortar and pestle for things I would have never imagined...
like bashing open a bulb of garlic and easing the cloves right out of their skins.

These rolls are beautiful and will likely make it onto the coming week's menu.
