Paper thin Swedish ginger cookies.

Top Review by Laurie P.

These cookies are delicious but the directions are a bit off. I tried rolling between wax paper which was fine but it wasn't clear if you press the cookie cutters through the wax paper or how thin to roll them. I found it easier to roll the dough out between the wax paper, remove one side & then place in freezer for a few minutes. Then I cut them, removed them from paper and placed them on pan. You need to let them cool after cooking for a few minutes on the pan before removing them or they crinkle up as you take them off the pan. I made them probably thicker than I should have and needed to bake them between 8 and 10 minutes. Once cooled they were wonderful.
