Pepper Cookies

…or Pepparkakor

Ok so its Christmas, and you’re right cookies aren’t healthy in anyway… but its Christmas! and something about there being less additives, preservatives and all that.

I “stumbled upon” this recipe and thought it was well worth reposting. Originally from the Guardian of all places:


Pepper cookies

So here goes…


For the dough:
golden syrup 150ml
brown sugar 175g
ginger powder 2 tbsp
white pepper ½ tsp
butter 175g
double cream 150ml
baking soda ½ tsp
plain wheat flour 700g, plus a bit of flour for kneading

For the icing:
icing sugar 300g
food colouring
water a bit

Mix syrup, brown sugar, ginger powder and butter in a big mixing bowl and whisk until soft and smooth. Then add the cream and mix well again. Mix the baking soda and flour, then mix into the butter mixture.

Flour the kitchen table and knead the dough well, then wrap the dough in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge overnight.

The next day roll out the dough really thinly and cut with the cookie cutters, using different shapes and sizes.

Preheat the oven to 200C/gas mark 6. Place the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for about 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

When cold, decorate with icing. Mix icing sugar with food colouring and then add water a little bit at a time, until the icing is smooth. Make sure it isn’t runny.

Definitely giving these a go and you should too. Merry Christmas and stuff
