These traditional Scandinavian cookies taste like Christmas. Buttery with hints of warm spices, they go perfectly with a hot beverage. I took the liberty of decorating with white piping which I believe is more of a German tradition.
This dough is more workable after being refrigerated for at least one hour, but preferable overnight.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
- 1 tsp ginger powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
Mix ingredients together. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour. Roll out dough to 1/4″ thick. Cut out shapes and bake at 375 for 5 minutes.
- use confectioners sugar to roll out cookie dough instead of flour
- the thicker the rolled out dough, the chewier the cookie. If you prefer crunchy cookies, try a thinner batch!
