Introduction

This is typical norwegian/ swedish I think. We make them every 13th of December to celebrate the "Santa Lucia Day". Lussekatter are lovely "buns" usually shaped as small S-es decorated with raisins. The kesam is not an original ingredient, but it tastes great and makes them a bit healthier ( at least I like to think so...) :)
