"Pepper nuts"

Baked these cookies today.
We always made these for Christmas growing up,
they are pretty easy, and came out great.
So I want to share the recipe,
only thing is that you need to make the dough the day before,
nd let it rest in the fridge over night.

2,5 dl (1 cup) light corn or sugar syrup
2 dl (little less than a 1 cup) sugar
65 gram (4 table spoons) butter
1/2 dl (3 table spoons) whipping cream
1 teaspoon ground star anise (I used 1 teaspoon concentrate)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon baking soda (natron)
500gram (3,5 cups) flour

Bring syrup, butter, sugar and cream to a boil.
Combine and add all dry ingredients.
Mix well.
Refrigerate over night.
Make small round "nuts" and place them with some space,
on a greased baking sheet, or use parchment paper.
Heat oven to 400F (or 200C), and bake for 8 min.
Makes about 120 cookies.
Have fun!

Peppernøtter er bare så godt! Her er det mannen i huset og datteren som baker peppernøtter hvert år. Så til helgen blir det peppernøtter her i huset også. Ha en fortsatt fin førjulstid :-)
