Spicy cookies are a beloved Christmas treat in Denmark and throughout Scandinavia where expensive spices were traditionally reserved for special holiday foods. These tiny (nut-free) butter cookies burst with flavor from cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

My mother in law has a polish name for these but my husband and brothers always just called them "Polish Christmas Cookies". They are very easy to make and have a nice anise flavor to them.

Norway's Best Pepper Cookies

Submitted by: Karen Nacke 
All Norwegian homes "must" serve at least 7 kinds of cookies at Christmas. This recipe is different from other pepperkaker recipes on this web site because it calls for cream and does not use eggs.

This recipe has been in my family for over 50 years. As a child, I couldn't wait to go to my sister's house to bake these. We would bake all one day and decorate them all day the next. Fond memories. Cut down on the salt if using margarine.

These Scandinavian sugar cookies are simple to make, just form them into bars and cut after baking. This is a recipe that my husband's nana has made for years. They are the easiest cookies I have ever made. The ingredients were harder to find than it was to make the cookies. They are like potato chips, you cannot eat just one!
