Pepperkakor Cookies

My sister makes these cookies every year at Christmas. They are a part of her annual traditional holiday baking. One Saturday, a couple of weekends ago, we were both busy baking and sending each other photos of our before, during and after. It was so much fun, it was almost as though we had a virtual baking date. In hind sight, perhaps we should have just gotten together and baked! Next year, that sounds like a plan to me.

The recipe for these cookies comes from my sister's sister-in-law
(that is a mouthful!) in BC, Margaux

Family Thoughts:

These cookies make a large batch which is perfect for the holidays! You can leave them as is or you can use Royal Icing to add some decorations.

The kids love these cookies, especially when they are cut out in cute shapes.


  1. these are so cute and absolutely perfect for the holidays. i was actually looking for a treat i could make and this is just perfect and so easy and quick too

  2. I love Pepperkakor Cookies, I always buy them at Ikea at this time of year. How thick do you roll out the dough?

    1. I always eye ball my cookie dough, but my guess would be approximately 1/4-1/2 of an inch.

    2. This recipe was delicious for muh whole family but it made my vulva quite dry.

  3. These are really cute! It'd a nice alternative to sugar or shortbread cookies.
