Pepparkakor (Ginger Cookies)

Total Time

From a little Swedish recipe book of mine. I just love Pepparkakor- I would always get the Anna's Pepparkakor that come in a nice tin at the Swedish Kontur Shop in St. Peter. They would either be shaped like hearts or be a flower-like shape. A very special treat!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water.
  2. Mix all ingredients together.
  3. Roll very thin.
  4. Cut dough with a cookie cutter.
  5. Bake at 325 degrees until light brown. Watch carefully, as cookies brown very quickly.

I followed the recipe exactly as printed, and refrigerated the dough overnight. It was still so sticky and thin, I could not roll it even using waxed paper. The cookies did not hold their shapes and were still very sticky after baking. It seems to be way to much molasses.
