You may be familiar with the Unikko pattern, an iconic floral print from Finnish textile giant Marimekko. The bold print has been around since 1964 and graces everything from bedding to ceramics to shoes to cotton fabric-by-the-yard. It's the floral darling of the textile design world. It also, apparently, makes for a fine-tasting macaron!

At this time of year, the kitchen of my childhood home was covered in a thin blanket of flour. That's because my mom when into baking overdrive around the second week of November and didn't stop until the day after Christmas. We kids all had our favorites and Mom always obliged.
