Instructions

Instructions are for 30 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix the water and spices in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the butter. Stir until melted. The cinnamon will make the consistency a bit slimy.
  2. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the spice mixture and egg white. Mix thoroughly and shape the dough into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to let the flavors mature.
  3. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
  4. Cut the dough in half and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough. Placing the dough between two pieces of parchment paper is the easiest. When flattened, the dough should be about 1/8 inch (3 mm) thick. Using cookie cutters, cut the gingerbread cookies into shapes. Use a spatula to carefully move them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake the cookies for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned. Lower the heat to 200°F (100°C) and continue to bake them for about 30 minutes or until crisp depending on the size and thickness of the cookies.
  6. Let the cookies cool completely on a cooling rack before serving or decorating them.

Tip!

For a more traditional Swedish experience, we suggest serving these gingerbread cookies with a schmear of butter and some crumbled blue cheese. It may sound like an odd combination, but it is a delicious treat and a sophisticated flavor combination for holiday hors d'oeuvres.

    Thank you Jill Wallentin! These cookies are delicious! Knowing the ounces/grams per serving for the 1 gram of carbs would be helpful. Thanks again!

    Could you post the original recipe or email it to me? It didn’t contain the almond flour or the psyllium husk powder. I used to use it for my son who is on a restricted diet due to a medical condition. It was one of the few recipes that didn’t have almond flour in which meant I could send it into school (his school is a nut free zone).

    We have not tested this recipe with coconut oil. It doesn't always react with the other ingredients in the same way that butter does.

    Something is wrong. The conversions of metric to non metric are way off. The dough came out like cake batter. I am afraid I just wasted good ingredients. I did put it in fridge, but I am afraid it's a lost cause. Sadly. I will see what happens tomorrow. Maybe It will cook up somehow. I will try again at some point because they sound so good. So far, not happy.

    The recipe is somewhat forgiving, but I would also like to try the original without the almond flour. Once they cook and cool, they are pretty tasty.
