A fun and delicious custom for St. Lucia Day is baking Luciakatter ~ St. Lucy's Cats. The traditional recipe is a saffron yeast dough, twisted to resemble a cat. I like to make my cats out of gingerbread or sugar cookie dough. If you make some extras and add some hooks, you can hang your Luciakatter on the tree!
