Those cookies look fabulous. So mouth watering. Beautiful photo too.


I love soft ginger cookies. Yum!

hey Siri!

This post got me absolutely craving some ginger cookies! unfortunately, i don't have an oven where i'm staying right now. So bright and early this morning i went out into trondheim with a mission - find some peparkaker... but alas, no luck. I know you said anna's was the brand name - any specific store you have luck finding them?
sadly, i'm leaving norway in a week. funnily enough, most of what i'm bringing back with me is food. :) jam, lots of different brown cheese (i'm addicted!), some havreflarn cookies with chocolate in the middle. I'm going to miss the good eats here for sure! :) I can't wait to get home to my oven to try out the eplekaker and ginger cookies on my own though. :)

So lovely! We always made molasses gingerbread cookies at Christmas. My grandma would cut them into little people for us to decorate. I love them when they are really really soft. Yum!!


Excuse me, miss, but I have also been dreaming about Christmas since September. And I'm not 10 years old, either.


Ditto for me [see above comment]. Looking at the calendar to schedule our holiday party.



Turns out that you can get a hold of "Anna's Thins" cookies in just about any major city across the world. Why's that, you ask? Because they stock them at the IKEA Marketplace. Actually, I think a lot of major grocery stores in the states sell them in a variety of flavors, although, in my opinion, original is best.I like Havreflarn too, but try to steer away from the cookie section at the store, because I always have a stock of 2 or 3 varieties of something from the blog at home. Happy baking when you get back home! -SIRI


Thanks for the recipe Siri! It was perfect and the cookies were delicious! Dave has already requested more. Thanks so much!

Hey Siri,

I just made these, with Pomegranate Molasses instead of regular (it was all I had). Strange and delicious results!
