|Pepperkake great with coffee|
Christmas would not be 'Jul' (Norwegian for Christmas) in a Scandinavian household without pepperkake, these go hand in hand and you cannot have one with out the other. So even though we had this last year here on the blog, it has to be included again this year. Same recipe, different photographs, different year. No apologies.

Last years post on pepperkake including photographed stages of the making

These are my sons absolute favourite Christmas cookies, he's a traditional boy at heart and as soon as we approach the end of November he is asking when we are going to make them. This is actually already my second batch for this Christmas season! I am sure I will be making a couple of more too.
The cookies keep well in an air tight container and made now would last till Christmas if you can stop nibbling them. However you could only bake half of the mixture and store the remainder in the fridge, just baking some as and when guests arrive, that way you will have a delicious Christmassy mixed spice aroma wafting through the house too!
|Love baking at this time of year in |
the red infused kitchen
|I prefer plain hearts, but decided |
to try cut out ones this year too
|Using cookie stamps, I could even |
add my own Norwegian message in the pepperkake
|I branched out and even iced some pepperkake this year, |
those that have seen last years post will know
I do not normally do this!
|And finally I even cut out the bottom of the small cookie hearts |
before baking to allow them to be used on the side of the espresso
coffee cups, I think they look good, I will do this again!
