Finland’s national poet was born on the 5th of February in 1804. It is tradition to on this day have tarts, simply called Runeberg tarts. His wife Fredrika baked them, perhaps for his birthday.
For years we bought them but, for the last 6 or 7 years I have made them myself. Also this year. The recipe I use is for 6 tarts. I only decorated 3 and put the other 3 in the freezer.
