Time for gingerbreads

I have joined the curious Professors Gothidays theme. As a person who feels physically sick when hearing christmas songs and hate the sight of a jolly santa, I can feel related to this theme. 


It's like everyone has danced the snow dance, because suddenly it came lots of snow. I have been busy with showeling the yard and building a high snowpile for the kids. This night became very cold, we got -25 degrees C. 
We baked gingerbread yesterday, it took almost the whole day. Here's Alfons baking.

I think gingerbreads need icing. The cakes are decorated with lots of different colours. As you can see the christmas theme is blended with some Halloween cutters.

The kitchen looks like when Pippi Longstocking is baking, exept the dough on the floor.

The stepdaughter made a calendar, one cookie for every day until christmas :)

The recipe gives hundreds of cookies but I know they will be eaten up. We have two birthdays to celebrate this month.
I have made the recipe myself it has more spices and molass than the common recipe.

Next post will be about my decorations at home. Until then, have a lovely day.

  3. Vilka superfina pepparkakor! Jag måste erkänna att jag älskar julen, men det är nog för att jag har hittat ett sätt att göra den "min". De partners jag haft har aldrig heller haft något julintresse, så då har jag fått ta tag i det liksom :)
    Usch, minus 25 grader? Här nere fick vi minus 8 som mest, och det tyckte vi var kallt!

  4. Those cookies look delicious! We never went Halloween on CHristmas cookies at my house... except the year my uncle came to decorate. Then we had Christmas tree cookies decorated in black sprinkles. Mom wasn't too pleased. :)

  5. I love baking with kiddos! I wish I lived closer to my little niece and nephew so I could bake with them.

    So nice to meet you through Gothidays!

  6. Åh vilka fina pepparkakor! :) Har inte köpt kakformarna som du tipsade om än men tänkte prova att göra egna pepparkaksformar. Vi får se hur det blir. :)

  8. WAHOO! GINGERBREADS!!!! Ed absolutely flipped out when I showed him your blog. He *loves* gingerbread, much like I do. And we both agreed that the gravestones, spiderwebs, and ghosties are FABULOUS! Thanks for participating!

  9. Ser supergott ut med alla färger :D
    Jag måste fråga, vad är "molass" för något? Jag fick ett recept på julbröd av en vän idag, med text på engelska, och där skulle man då ha molass i! :)

    1. I det här fallet är det sirap. Det kan nog stämma med ditt recept också. Jag var osäker så jag använde google translate.
