    ellie_'s Note:

    These easy-to-make rolled out spicy ginger cookies was originally printed in The Finnish Cookbook. Although the recipe specifies to cut them in 3-inch rounds, they are also great cut in different shapes for the holiday season.

      What a great recipe! These are wonderful "dunkers" in a cup of tea. Thanks for posting. PS I did scorch the first pan a bit but that was my fault not the recipe's =)

      Great recipe - even our Finnish friends enjoyed it at our Boxing Day dinner (reminds them of home). However, it'd do with a little more ginger- next time I try this, it'd be with 2 or more tablespoon of ginger. Yums!
