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.
