Or, why not eat a slice of the Swedish Cheese Pie on ‘the day after’ with a glas of wine – curling up in front of the fireplace with your favourite book. There are many different variations on the Swedish Cheese Pie, but the main ingredients are always the same. Try out simple and delicious recipe!

Tips about Swedish Cheese Pie

To make things even easier, use a pre-made dough. However, it can be worthwhile making your own – especially if you are allergic to gluten and want to experiment with a gluten-free flour mix.

Swedish Cheese Pie – like many other pies – can be eaten directly from the oven, but is even better after a few hours or even the day after.

Try also different herbs, such as parsley, tarragon, oregano or thyme. There are plenty of variations to choose from :)

Bonus recipe: – Cheese Pie from Honolulu! (Probably originally a Swedish recipe :P )

Within interior design, I love the combination of old and new, a marriage of history and modernism, romanticism meeting minimalism. In addition, I have a burning passion for crispy silks, dark chocolate and long baths with a fragrance of lavender.
