This is the Swedish version of a snickerdoodle, or similar, childhood cookie that your grandma would offer you when you went over for coffee in the afternoon. They are quite similar to regular thumbprint cookies, but they are larger and the dough contains a little bit of baking powder. They are very easy to make, and super cute to have around!

This type of cake reminds me of when I was little, since it was one of the first things my friends and I learned how to make! It’s still as good today, and is very easy to make, the glaze makes the cake crazy moist, and gives it a great coffee taste. If you don’t like coffee, the coffee can be left out!
