In another large bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, and golden syrup using a handheld mixer set to medium speed until the mixture is pale and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Add the reserved spice mixture and the heavy cream in three alternating batches, beginning and ending with the spice mixture, until the dough just combines. Transfer dough to a work surface, divide in half, and shape each ealf into a flat disk. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 1 hour.

      My mom always made pepparkakor for Christmas, but alas when I tried to follow suit, it was always with huge frustration...rolling them out was a first class nightmare. so many thanks swissms for posting this. they rolled out nice and thin without cracking or sticking and taste divine!
