Good morning!!! Lovely sunshine outside and a beautiful day with all the lovely things waiting for us!!!
Today I’m waiting you in my kitchen! It’s time to make traditional Finnish Christmas biscuits! Please join me…
I’ll show you how you make the dough today, but then unfortunately you have to keep it in cold for the next day to be able to make the biscuits.
To make these coocies we need following things:
– 200 gramme butter or margarin
– 200 gramme sugar
– 1,5 decilitre sirup (or honey, but it’s more sweet so then use less sugar)
– 1 dl creme
– 450 gramme flour
– 2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon cloves
– 1 teaspoon allspice
– 1,5 (half) teaspoon ginger
1. Melt the butter in the pot (don’t boil)
2. Add cinnamon, cloves, allspice and ginger
3. Add sugar, sirop and creme – mix well!
4. Mix soda with small part of the flour and add this to your dough
5. Add the rest of the flour – don’t mix too much not to make it tough
6. Leave the dough in the fridgerator till the next day! I hope there is some left tomorrow…
Next day you are ready to bake the biscuits! Heat the oven + 190 degrees. From the following photos you can see how to make thin ginger biscuits!
It’s better to make the dough in two parts and keep the other half in the fridgerator. If it’s too warm and soft you can’t get the biscuits out from the table! Also if you feel that it’s difficult to make them even the dough is cold, you can add still some flour.
Those left over pieces you make again ball and thin sheet and more biscuits!
Bake your biscuits in +190 degrees. They don’t need long time so don’t go to your computer…even Nero didn’t want a black biscuit…The biscuits shouldn’t be soft when you take them from the oven. Leave them to cool…
My Snowman is waiting to get his stomach full of buiscuits! I would love to see where you keep your Christmas coocies!
Today we can have our coffee outside with beautiful sunshine!!! But…who knows…perhaps tomorrow we shall have quite cold weather with rain. Today we got oil for the heating – can you believe that we haven’t used the heating even once yet (since last april)!
When I was baking the biscuits I was looking for new (for me) blogs and I found Sarah. She makes quilts with wonderful fabrics and lovely colours…and she has a giveaway…so go quickly, it’s till 10. of December!
Many of us loves pigs! Mia has made today wonderful pig! An other most sweet pig you can enjoy with Vanessa! Look also her latest posts with new animals!
Have a lovely, lovely time with all wonderful Christmas things and enjoy your buiscuits!!!
