HELP! NEED EXTRA CRISP (HARD) GINGERSNAP (PEPPARKAKOR) RECIPE!!
I love gingersnaps, or as the Swedish say Pepparkakor. My grandmother made these awesome ones that were very hard (crisp) like the ones you buy boxed in the store, but of course were more awesome because of the fresh homemade taste and spices. I have tried dozens of recipes but none of them are truly crisp or hard. Every recipe I have tried has some oil or butter. I was told by one of my older friends that the recipe her mother used didn't have any oil or butter in it and it was dark, rich and very hard. That's what I am looking for. Can anyone help me please. I am tired of baking cookies and giving them away to the neighbors because they are not the Pepparkakor that I remember eating as a kid.
