Ginny’s Pepparkakka




Oven 375 F


1 c butter

1 ½ c sugar

1 Tbsp corn syrup

1 egg


Cream together.

2 tsp baking soda

3 c flour

3 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp ginger

2 tsp cloves

Add and mix well, scrape sides and bottom of the bowl to incorporate all ingredients. Form into two logs, approximately 1 ½ inches thick. Wrap with wax paper and refrigerate for at least one hour.



Cut into thin (a little less than ¼ inch) slices and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven 7-9 minutes.


Delicious Swedish gingersnaps! This is one of my favorite memories of baking Christmas cookies with my dear friend, Ginny, while Brittany and Sampson patrolled the kitchen for crumbs.
