Pin It

These are some wonderful Finnish cookies called Inkivaarileivat.  Try saying that 3 times!  We’ll just call them ginger cookies.


1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup light molasses
1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1.  Place butter, brown sugar, whipping cream, and molasses in a mixer bowl.  Mix until well-blended.  Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well.  Cover dough and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
2.  Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Divide dough into 4 parts.  Roll each part to 1/8 inch thickness on lightly floured work surface. 
3.  Cut into 2-1/2-inch circles with scalloped cookie cutter.  Place 1-inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
4.  Bake until light brown, about 8 minutes.  Cool on wire racks.  Makes about 3-1/2 dozen cookies.
