I'm sure these cookies must taste fine, but the actual swedish pepparkaka recipe calles for molasses and that the sugars and spices be cooked in a saucepan prior to adding, also that the dough needs to rest overnight to aid in bringing out all the wonderful spice flavors. The hint about rolling out the cookie dough to get them as thin as possible is great!!...God Yul
