I’ve baked again and actually made double up on the recipe my friend Mia Malene posted here. They are just so yummy and super easy to make! I have no idea what you would call them in English, but we call them “Pebernødder” which is basically pepper cookies. Not that they are very spicy or anything. If you guys want a translation of the recipe, I’ll gladly make one! :)

So my friend Mia Malene posted a recipe for a cinnemon/raisin bread and it looked so good! I decided to bake it and here’s how it turned out :D

In Denmark baking is a key element to the holidays. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t associate baking with Christmas. Now we do bake all year around, but it’s when december hits that we bake the more heavy spiced stuff like gingerbread. So here I am with a recipe for a ginger-honey bread house also called “Honningkagehus” in Danish.

This recipe is a traditional Danish Christmas cookie. It smells divine and taste like heaven. I’ll admit they aren’t figure friendly, but you won’t get the same taste if using fat free stuff. This recipe will make around 35 cookies :D
