If you hear a legend that one Swedish king ate too much semla and died, it does not mean you should not indulge in eating these fatty beauties. Light dough, buttery cream—perfection itself! Swedes love them and wait every year for February to come. Starting from a week before Fat Tuesday, this delightful season begins in every house, in every restaurant, and in every mind.
