We dusted off our aprons and oiled up the rolling pin today, and got baking some pepperkaker (or 'papa-nacker', as Justin calls them!) using this recipe. With lots of golden syrup in the mix, our dough was extremely sticky, hence the flour everywhere!
With rather a shortage of cookie cutters, we ended up freehand-cutting our little pepperkaker people: a Justin, an Astrid, a Tilly and a (rather horsey) Bella.
Yes, Tilly is about twice the size of Justin and I... we're not winning any prizes for photographic accuracy!
They're very tasty, although perhaps a little thick -- the recipe said it made 30 to 40, and we got about 12 out of our dough!
And if you're in the mood to make a batch of your own, perhaps try out some of these beautiful designs:
And there's a delicious-looking recipe for fancy-schmancy pepperkaker (or 'Pfefferkuchen' as Mum calls them) over at The Fable of the Table, if you're up for a bit more of a zesty biscuit!
