Piparkakuts are a traditional holiday cookie in Finland. They are usually cut into round scallop shapes, but little boys and pigs are the traditional shapes during the holidays. I found this recipe on the internet and I can't wait to give it a try soon! --NOTE-- cooking time includes cooling time and chilling time.
