my favorite holiday snack






I år var jag med från start och gjorde degen kvällen innan Det Stora Baket. Med ett gammalt recept utklippt från en tidning, med överstrukna mängdmått på kryddorna och mormors och mammas egna (bättre) ditskrivna blir det de godaste pepparkakorna jag vet. Och de jag fick med mig hem ska räcka ända fram till jul, hur det nu ska gå till.

This year I joined my mother in the making of the gingerbread cookie dough the night before The Big Baking Day. An old recipe cut out from a newspaper, with the spice measurements crossed out and my grandmother's and mother's modified amounts scribbled on the side, makes the best pepparkakor I know. And the ones I brought home are supposed to last until Christmas...
