    Chef Dudo's Note:

    Found this on a Swedish recipe site some time ago. It makes a lot of cookies but they keep well and can also be frozen. Don't let the amount of ginger as well as the amount of baking soda scare you off. It is just right for these cookies. Hope you'll like them as much as we do.

      When I was 7 we lived in Norway for a year, and that winter we went to visit relatives in Sweden. I remember eating these cookies every day that I was there. I haven't thought about them in years, and by chance happened upon this recipe. The only change I made was to use golden syrup instead of corn syrup, that's what I had in the house at the time. These brought back such delicious memories, thanks!
