    This is a Swedish gingerbread recipe known as 'Stora Pepparkakor'. These are very gingery and chewy compared to mainstream gingerbread.

    • 4 teaspoons ground ginger

    This is one of my top recipes ever. It never fails to be a winner. I don't like ginger but I LOVE these cookies. They are SO FREAKING GOOD. They are soft and a bit chewy. I have never actually made gingerbread men with this recipe. I make round cookies and then sandwhich them with orange butter cream (butter cream with juice of an orange and orange rind). The flavours work amazingly together! I refrigerate them for an hour or so, and then put them in my cookie jar. They've lasted for almost a week but then they were all gone...but I think they would have lasted a good while longer. Even after a week they still tasted fresh. On their own they are almost as good. These cookies have an amazing flavour and texture and this will be a recipe to keep forever and pass onto my children and grandchildren! Thank you SO MUCH for posting! - 09 Dec 2016
