Piemontegirl Gingerbread Cookies

I love gingerbread cookies. And it always puts me in the holiday mood when making them. This year, for the first time, I decided to try and make the dough from scratch. Turns out it is quite easy!

Here’s what you need:

  • 300g butter
  • 2 dl syrup 
  • 4 dl sugar
  • 1 ts cloves
  • 2 dl cream
  • 1 ts ginger
  • 4 ts cinnamon
  • 2 ts baking soda
  • 900g flour

Follow these easy steps to make the dough:

  1. Mix butter, syrup, sugar and cream in a pot. Heat up until it is all mixed. Remove from heat.
  2. When the mixture has cooled down a little, sift the spices, baking soda and most of the flour into the mixture. 
  3. Continue to add flour until the dough has a good consistency
  4. Set in the fridge to cool for a couple of hours. Remember to take the dough out a little while before cutting the cookies

I’ve been making quite a few treats this holiday season. Check out my Panettone recipe here.
