Gingerbread is something that is so delicious to do from scratch. Sure, store bought gingerbread is good to eat as it is but it will not be as tasty finished gingerbread I think. But even if you made the dough from scratch, or if you bought it at the store, it takes an awful lot of time to do. Me and Johan sat for at least four hours in all, with the oven on, baking the gingerbread. Then it's not fun to have a kitchen that is only about 12 square meters.


150 g butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups syrup
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp ginger
1tbsp cloves (minced)
1 tbsp of baking soda
3/4 cups water
900 g flour (about 1 ½ l)

Stir butter, sugar and syrup together smooth with the spices.
Add the baking soda and water and work the flour into the dough. Knead the dough until smooth on a floured surface. Wrap the dough and let it rest in the fridge overnight.

The day after, you roll the dough, not too thin, and punch out cookies with the shapes you like. Preheat oven to 225 degrees C and bake in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes
