Saffron buns that are prepared during the festival of St. Lucia, celebrated across Sweden on December 13th. Because of their unique S shape, which resembles a curled up cat (the raisins being the eyes), these buns are also known as Lucy Cats!

 

Slightly sweet and buttery, these buns are made out of dough infused with saffron and are freshly baked at home.
