My grandmother (she just turned 94) is from Berne, Switzerland and this is her recipe. She would use the smallest cookie cutters to make these cookies and I would spend hours in the kitchen helping her. My photo includes the cookies and my grandmothers rolling pin. —Foodie-isms
bottle of dark Molasses
bottle of light molasses
cardamom (I use more)
In This Recipe
Mix molasses (both bottles), butter, eggs, brown sugar, and cardamom.
Then add flour and baking soda and combine.
Cover and put in refrigerator for 3 days.
When you are ready to start baking (after the third day) roll out the dough onto a floured surface. Keep unused dough cold until ready to roll. Use cookie cutters to cut out your shaped cookies.
Bake at 375 for 7 minutes. Larger cookies will take a bit longer to bake.
