About this recipe:This is my mother's recipe for Swedish gingerbread. We like the cookies very gingery, chewy, and warm. They are a great festive treat to have with a glass of cold milk or a cup of tea. This recipe can also be used to make puffier and more substantial gingerbread men. I can't think of anything better to smell baking on a cold evening.
The flour quantity in this recipe definately needs reviewing as dough mixture much too soft and sticky. I kept adding flour to make biscuit dough. Biscuits also expanded more than other gingerbread recipes. Flavour good - 16 Feb 2011
