Ulrika Pettersson grew up in the north of Sweden where she learnt how to bake traditional Swedish “small” cookies by watching her mother and grandmother. The Swedish fika and kafferep tradition is almost two hundred years old and the recipes for these cookies has been passed down through generations. This is why every Unna Bakery cookie is handmade with few and mostly organic ingredients using no preservatives. The name comes from the Swedish word “unna” which loosely translates to “indulge”.
Before starting Unna Bakery Ulrika worked as a graphic designer and it was not until she moved to New York with her husband and 2 girls she got the opportunity to start her own bakery. Unna Bakery cookies are made at the incubator Hot Bread Kitchen in New York.
