    Sirups kager, a Danish spice cookie "as brown as a reindeer," was a humble but coveted Christmas prize enjoyed by her grandfather in Denmark, writes our contest winner, Julie K. Cook, of Chicago. Holiday cookies that can be found in Danish, Denmark, Dane, European, and Scandinavian cuisines. The recipe is from Food Down Under's website and included in Zaar World Tour 2005 swap.

    1. 1
      In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter or margarine, sugar and corn syrup. When well combined, stir in cinnamon, cloves and baking soda mixture. Slowly add flour and mix well after each addition until dough becomes stiff. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, approximately one hour. This time is included in the preparation time.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Using a reindeer or desired shaped cookie cutter, cut shapes into dough. Dough can also be rolled into logs about 1-inch in diameter and sliced crosswise into 1-inch-thick rounds.
    3. 3
      Bake on ungreased cookie sheets until lightly browned, about 8 to 10 minutes.

      Made for KK's Cookie Exchange Event. Ohhhh my goodness if they make cookies like this in Denmark it is well worth moving I enjoyed the crispness and flavor of these treats that were cut into stars and glazed with dragees at each of the points. Especially nice for the Holiday gift baskets. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      My husband especially loved these cookies (I would give them 5 stars myself). They are so spicy and yummy. We couldn't help eating them warm out of the oven so they were nice and soft. These smell so heavenly when they are baking. I was out of corn syrup so I substituted dark brown sugar with a couple of Tablespoons water. Other than that I followed the recipe. Wonderful Wonderful recipe. Thank you for sharing Lauralie41

      Unlike Jellyqueen, I was less happy with these. They did, indeed, smell wonderful but the finished cookies were more rock-like than crisp. Required dunking--and once softened in coffee or milk, were flavorful but the texture was really off.
