This wonderful recipe was given to me from my Finnish friend.
They are sometimes called SLAP EARS .....
.because sometimes the children did not want to wait for the rolls to cool.
Then the mother would call out "You children touch them rolls .
.I will SLAP YOUR EARS !!
Actually the are supposed to resemble two ears!!
So much for Finnish humor! ...... lol
