Gingersnaps (Pepparkakor)

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without these cookies on the Smorgasboard table. We cut them in all kinds of shapes, stars, hearts, goats, reindeer, you name it. Don't just save them for the holidays, however, these are great any time of the year. It's key to roll these very thin before cutting out, as that is what gives the cookie it's traditional "snap". These cookies are a bit of work, but the dough freezes beautifully, so make a batch of dough, cut and bake a few, then freeze the rest for another day.
