It is high time to make your ginger cookies for Christmas. This Swedish recipe is easy to follow and makes the most spicy, crisp and yummy cookies. The dough is very easy to make, and to work with, and will easily make you thin and delicious Elghs, Christmas Trees etc. The dough needs to rest over night, so plan ahead. Recipe to follow here:

150 ml melted butter
150 ml treacle
150 ml whipping cream
150 ml sugar
150 ml brown muscovado sugar
1 liter of plain flower
15 ml baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cardamon
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp salt

Mix the butter with the treacle and warm. Mix in all the other ingredients. It will make a quite loose dough. Let it rest over night. Roll out and use cookie cutters, mine are from Ikea! 3 minutes in a 180 degrees warm oven will be enough! Will make lovely thin and crisp cookies, about 150!
