This is a recipe for traditional Swedish ginger snaps, originally from a family friend of my grandmother. Our family makes these cookies every year for our Christmas Eve celebration. They are traditionally cut into heart shapes, but we experiment with flowers, angels, bells, stars, etc. Note: requires overnight refrigeration.
