Pepperkaker Gingerbread Recipe

This Pepperkaker Gingerbread Recipe is a great one for Christmas cookies whether you’re Swedish or not. 

Note: This dessert should be prepared the night before baking and serving.

We met a real mixture of nationalities on our travels and where ever we were, we celebrated each other’s customs and recipes.  It was great at Christmas because we had a month of celebration.  Swedish people start early as do the Norwegians.  We have the 25th of December and the Spanish take the party into January.  The children loved it and they got to dress up and discover lots about the customs of their international friends.
