Christmas Count Down …6 – Gingerbread cookies
I made gingerbread cookies yesterday with a recipe I got from my mother in law, very old. It is actually called syrup cookies due to the amount of syrup. If you need a good recipe for gingerbread cookies this one is very nice.
You can either make the cookies very thin or a little bit thicker. Then you get more chewy cookies, I like that.
- 250 g flour
- 125 g sugar
- 75 g butter
- 1/2 cup syrup(150 g)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
- 1 teaspoon clove, ground
- 1 teaspoon ginger, ground
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg
Mix everything together in a Kitchen Aid or some electronic mixer. First the dry ingredient and then the rest. The butter should be at room temperature.
When you got a nice dough put it in the fridge and let it rest for 1-2 hours.
Now it ´s ready to be flatten and cut how ever you like.
Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes at 180°c. Don´t bake them for to long.
