    Julie B's Hive's Note:

    Source: Jan Baumer, LaPorte County Public Library, LaPorte, Ind. "According to an old Swedish custom, if you place a pepparkakor in the palm of your hand, make a wish and tap the cookie, breaking it into three pieces, your wish will come true."--LaPorte Herald-Argus, November 11, 1997 Prep time does not reflect the 2 hour chill time.

    1. 1
      Mix flour, spices and baking soda; set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until blended. Beat in water gradually; beat in flour until well blended; dough will be soft.
    2. 2
      Divide into four sections. Shape each fourth into a one-inch-thick circle on a piece of plastic wrap. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
    3. 3
      Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease cookies sheets. On a lightly floured surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll a quarter of the dough at a time to one-eighth-inch thick. Cut out three-inch-wide hearts. Place one inch apart on cookie sheets and bake 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned.
    4. 4
      Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool. May be frosted with butter icing, using maraschino cherry juice instead of milk to make the frosting.
