Pepparkakor (Ginger Cookies)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bec6206

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!

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.

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.
