These Finnish Christmas pastries are everywhere during the Christmas season! Some call them joulutorttu, meaning Christmas pastry, others tähtitorttu, meaning star pastry, but whatever the name, they taste like the traditional Finnish Christmas. 🙂 They’re very easy to prepare, whether you decided to make the dough yourself or use the store-bought one. I gotta admit that I’m always using the pre-cut butter dough sheets and never make my own, because the Christmas time is always so busy with a lot of cooking and baking and I have to save time. The butter dough recipe is the one I use for making salty pastries but it works just as well for these Christmas star pastries.
