Joulutorttu and Christmas cookies!

Tonight, it was unfortunately our last meeting. We decided for our last meeting to bake some Christmas cookies and some Joulutorttu. I had never baked gingerbread cookies and joulutorttu before, so I was really excited.

After we baked the Christmas cookies we decorated them with our self-made glace and some candies. The joulutorttu and most of the Christmas cookies turned out really good!

Because we were in such a Christmas mood we talked about words related to this amazing holiday.

I have to say that this course was totally what I expected! I learned a lot about the Finnish culture and language and that was my goal. It was also really nice to teach about my culture, because not a lot of people know a lot about the Dutch culture. Thanks Elisa for the really nice and fun meetings and for teaching me about the Finnish culture! Now it’s almost time to celebrate Christmas so I wish everyone a Hyvää Joulua!
