Pepparkakor (Ginger Cookies)


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1½ cups sugar, sifted
  • 1 Tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 2½ cups flour, sifted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix together the butter, sugar, and syrup until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the egg and beat well.
  4. Stir in the baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.
  5. Slowly add the flour to make a stiff dough. Add enough flour to make dough easy to handle without sticking to fingers or cookie press.
  6. Using the bar design of a cookie press, press out several long strips of dough on ungreased cookie sheets.
  7. If no cookie press is available, shape dough into rectangles with your hands.
  8. Bake for 7 minutes until cookies are medium brown.
  9. Remove them from the oven and let rest for 1 minute before cutting them into 2-inch pieces.
  10. Remove cookies from cookie sheets when cool. Store in an airtight container.
Makes 7 to 8 dozen.
