Gingerbread cookies

(gingerbreads and old gingerbread molds which my family have used for decades)

150 g sugar (1 3/4 dl/175 ml)
250 g dark syrup (1,5 dl/150 ml)
1 tsp ginger
3 tsp cinnamon
0,5 tsp cloves
(1 tsp cardamom)
2 tsp baking soda
150 g butter
1 egg
500 - 600 g wheat flour (10 - 12 dl/1000 - 1200 ml)*

*Note: I usually use only 8 - 9 dl (800 - 900 ml) wheat flours. The dough will be softer and easier to handle.

Boil the sugar, molasses and spices in a saucepan. more soda and stir until the entire mixture is a foam.

Put the butter in a bowl and pour the hot mixture on top. Stir until the butter melts. Add the egg. Cool the mixture well. Add the flour and beat until quite hard dough.

Roll out the dough into a thin sheet. Take the pieces by molds. Move cookies to the baking tray.

Bake at +225 C for about 8 minutes.

They look really good - did you make them today?

My hubby has an important birthday coming up and has requested a fruit cake with icing to celebrate it, so I shall be baking that tomorrow.

Those are traditional here at the Christmas time but I think that will make them soon. They will go well with a cup of tea or coffee at the cold autumn day as well.

I've just made these cookies because I had all the ingredients available. perfect with an afternoon cuppa. And there's my boat kitchen, in all its compact glory. I've got two Kilmer jars of sloe gin on the go!
