Terrific flavor, awesome texture! I used parchment paper so didn't grease my pan or sugar the drops of dough. I also used a 3/4-inch cookie scoop. We got 140 cookies!!! Thank you! These are great! Update May 18, 2008: We have taken these to two different dinner parties and none were left, everyone loves them and wants the recipe! Thankyou! UPDATE: I can't make enough of these or eat enough of them!! Neither can my kids. This is our favorite!! Thanks.

My husband's mother used to make a Swedish rolled pepparkakor cookie, and the flavor of these are much, much better. Delicate and crispy on the outside, scrumptious on the inside. Perfect to serve to friends with that cup of tea. The recipe is perfect as is, I made no changes.

These taste just like the pepparkakor my grandma used to make. I added a little extra cloves and ginger and a tiny bit of nutmeg. They turned out great.

I had to make these for a project of mine. And I forgot to rill them in sugar... well, they turned out very nice still! :)

Great! I love spice cookies and these were just right. For a little added zip, I made orange scented sugar to roll them in, and I recommend it! (Zest an orange, combine zest with 1.5 cups sugar in container, cover, and shake until well combined!)

So good. Love the intense spice flavours. Made this multiple times through the holidays last year. Be careful not to overcook them: they get really solid! (But still good for dunking when solid: they didn't go to waste.) Thank-you!

Nice flavor, but not quite as spicy as I wanted. Might add some more ginger next time.

Nice recipe, thank you! Very good and chewy and they are still great a week later! My only problem was that the ginger seemed a little overpowering, but that may have been my fault, I was kind of in a rush when making them. A very pretty color but I warn you to not overbake them as I did on a few trays! Thanks again. These reminded me of gingersnaps.
