Christmas Craft #4 - "Pebernødder", or Danish Christmas cookies

As promised, here is the translated recipe for Husband's incredible Danish Christmas cookies. Literally meaning, "pepper nuts", these beauties are teeny-tiny, so can be squeezed into even the fullest stomach post festive feast. They're also incredibly cheap, easy to make and look gorgeous in a Kilner jar, tied up with a ribbon so if you manage not to scoff the lot, they make fantastic gifts.

And as ever, they're great for little hands to join in with.

You need:

125 g salted butter

125 g sugger
1 egg
1 teaspoon bicarb
1/2 teaspoon ginger
3/4 teaspoon cardamon
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
275 g white flour

Blend the sugar and butter, slowly adding the egg.
Add the flour and spices
Roll the dough into a sausage and cut off sections
Roll the sausage sections into balls
Put on a baking sheet on grease-proof paper
Bake at 200 degrees for 10 - 12 min or until they reach a 'good colour'
