Xmas without Pepparkakor? Well.. it been like tat for me for years... Afterall.. I only eat them often when I was in Sweden where its available thru out the year.

Oh yes... Pepparkakor is Gingerbread cookies hehe just in case some of the readers dont know =) .. Xmas will swing me into the very much kind of mood since I think I really miss winter too much...

Today finaly I pull myself out of the chair.. and start doing these. I told my friend that i will make a xmas tree for her hehe... and thus.. I cannot break my promise.. especialy since... I wanted to do this last year but procastination puts it off... hee

Pepparkakor is a soft kind of cookies... so young or old.. can eat it so long as u like or dont mind the spice smell. I like it very much thou..

Today I tried out this recipe which PT shared with me. Really nice.. thou I tink I might add more spices if its for own consumption...

My Xmas Tree

While people do reindeer... I do Moose can?? Sicne its the national animal in Sweden so I assume my cutter is Moose... The animal is also known as the Elk.. A cousin of the Deer family

Did the Xmas tree, star as well as Pig too.. yes PIG... AGAIn, back in Sweden, pig icon is all over during Xmas.. thou I have yet to know why do they liek the pig.. but I thought they look cute too

Pardon me for the poor picture as Im was really exhausted by time I fin everythg as I been bakign 2 other batches of oatmeal cookies as well..
