Runeberg's tart (Finnish: Runebergintorttu, Swedish: Runebergstårta) is a Finnish pastry that is seasoned with almonds and rum and it usually weighs about 100 grams. There is usually raspberry jam in a sugar ring on the tart.The tart got its name from the Finnish poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg (b. 1804) who, according to the legend, enjoyed the tart with punsch. Runeberg's tarts are typically eaten only in Finland and are generally available from the beginning of January to Runeberg's birthday on February 5. - Wikipedia
Here is what a traditional Finnish one looks like:
So how does my creation taste? My wife, who is a pasty chef, gives it high marks, as do her Finnish friends who she requests that I make them for when they come to visit. That's great to know that I am on the right track. Of course, the important thing is that I enjoy them, which I do;Much more than I enjoy baking them.
Here are some Finns who made their own as well, and were nice enough to include recipes:
Runeberg’s Cakes - Tofu for Two (They made mini ones)
Runeberg day - Life in Rondônia (A Finn living in Brazil)
