Homemade Gingerbread Cookies

Hilda Grahnat, one of my favorite bloggers, posted a blog on her favorite holiday snack. I, along with several others, requested her recipe and she was kind enough to share it! I did a little bit of altering, since ingredients are a little different in Sweden than they are in America so here is my final recipe! (Decimal measurements might be a little awkward too, but they will suffice!) Enjoy! :)

.6 cup golden honey
1 cup brown sugar
7 oz butter
3/4 tbsp ground ginger
1/2 tbsp ground cloves
3 tbsp ground cinnamon
.6 cup heavy cream
1 tsp baking soda
5 cups flour

Stir honey, brown sugar, butter and spices to a batter. This is easiest if the butter is either melted or room temperature. Whip cream into foam and mix it in with the batter. Mix baking soda with flour and add flour to batter little by little. Make a "dough loaf" and let cool in the refrigerator over night, covered in aluminum foil.

Use rolling pin to make a thin layer of the dough. Use extra flour on the roller if the dough too sticky, but not too much! Use baking shapes and lift the shaped cookies onto a baking pan covered in foil. Bake at 395˚F for 6-10 minutes or until brown enough. Careful, they burn easily! Move onto a cooling rack. Serve when cool and store leftovers in a closed metal or glass (not plastic) jar.

By the way, this recipe makes approximately 7 dozen cookies. Yes, SEVEN dozen, aka 84 cookies. A lot, I know. Perfect for family gatherings for the holidays.
