    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This unusual gingerbread is traditional to Latvia. Very nicely-spiced. Quantity varies depending on how you shape and cut your cookies.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine molasses, brown sugar, butter and honey in a pot, heat until everything is melted together, but DO NOT SCORCH. If you do, the gingerbread won't hold together. Add the 2 1/2 cups flour and spices to the mixture. Let the mixture cool a bit. Add eggs, then let the mixture cool completely. Add the 2 1/4 cups flour (a little bit more if the dough is sticky when kneading), baking soda and baking powder. Knead until smooth and not sticky. Refrigerate overnight.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Roll the dough out quite thin and cut out into cookies shapes. Bake until just golden and lightly brown underneath, about 3 to 5 minutes, depending on your oven. Let cool, then remove from pan.

      Dear Evelyn, incredible until now there was not any photo on your recipe.
      I prepared the double quantity of dough (a huge amount) and this was the best decision. The dough was perfect, not sticky and very easy to shape. I cooked the cookies for 4 ½ minutes.
      I wish you all the BEST and a lot of angels to protect you!

      Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I took these cookies out of the oven just 10 minutes ago... the smell in my kitchen is amazing! These cookies taste just as delightful as they smell too - I increase all the spices very slightly as I love spicy cookies & am thrilled with the result. I will be making these a lot - & I won't be waiting for Christams to do it! ;)

      I did some amount increases with *all* the spices, also I use 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper and the rest black pepper to equal 1/2 teaspoon, this cookie recipe is semi labour-intensive but I will probably make again, I was pleased with the outcome, thanks Ev!...Kitten:)
