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.

    Could I also get the almond free version? My son-in-law is allergic to almonds and my daughter is always looking for nut-free recipes.

    My grandkids also go to a nut-free zone school, so the version without almond flour would be appreciated so I could send cookies in their lunches. Are you able to send it to me as well?

    Sorry to hear these didn't work out for you! Be sure to check the thickness of the cookies, as well as your oven temp.

    Is 2 teaspoons of clove really correct? That seems like a huge amount.
