GRANDMA’S PEPPERKAKOR

This is my grandmother’s recipe. I have no idea where this came from as my grandmother had written it on an index card , my mother had transfered to another index card for her file, and I copied onto a third index card for my files from my mother’s card.

PEPPERKAKOR

1/2 pound butter (1 cup)

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 Tablespoons Kayro syrup (dark)

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 egg beaten

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon ginger

1 teaspoon cardamon

3 cups flour

There are no mixing directions nor rolling and baking directions, but I have found that most of the recipes seem logical.

Cream the butter and sugar and Kayro syrup. Then, sift the dry ingredients together.( I don’t find that I need to sift the dry ingredients together for much of anything. This might be a baking flaw, but I usually fluff the flour before I gently place it in the measuring cup. Then I place the other dry ingredients in the same bowl and use a whisk to mix the ingredients together.) Stir in the dry ingredients until well mixed. Chill the dough overnight.

Roll the dough out on a floured surface and cut into shapes. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet.

The index card doesn’t give an oven temperature, nor does it give a length of time for baking. My guess is that the oven temp should be 350 degrees and the length would be determined by how thin you rolled the dough.
