A little bit to early for some people but for me in the perfect time! I love this cookis and i love to make them from scratch. the perfekt winter cookies. It take time to mke them but I enoy the time. -about baking and cooking food I do everything and every single meal from scratch. I have made my own marmelad and jam to this year. Back to gingerbreads! How many of you guys are making these for christmas?  I did find the recipe in my book from 1946! And sure as hell the recipes from that book are 5 times better than the shit I  have find on the internet.

So this is the real gingerbread, how to make the real deal. Last year when I tried to make gingerbreads it became something that tasted and smelled like gingerbread but it dident look like it. Something did get really wrong last year. And I hade a bad recipe to.0gingerbred1

350 g of granulated sugar

100 g syrup

130 g of milk 

1 tablespoon baking soda

2 eggs

2 1/2 hg butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

1 teaspoon ground cloves

700 g flour

Take suger,syrup, butter and the spices and boil it togheter for about 15 minutes, and don´t forget to stir every minute. Put away from the stove and pour in to a bowl. Mix the eggs and carefully pour in the flour. Let the dough rest about 1-3 days before you use it.
