Yesterday the weather was quite nice after a very very very blustery Friday. Today the weather has returned to its blustery form, this time however it includes a lot of rain as well. Needless to say that going outside is not something I am looking forward to.
So, something else was needed. Like making 'peppernuts'. Or ginger nuts. Spicey nuts. There are no nuts involved at all and precious little pepper. Cinnamon, nutmeg and a few other spices however... My kitchen smells fantastic!
I had decided to make two batches at once, which was not too good in the making the dough department, but I managed in the end. Then I had to make small balls of the dough. Well, from a far distance perhaps...
Then they had to go into the oven. Three batches in total. Twenty minutes wait and one batch was done. So, about two hours from beginning to end. Making the house smell like a bakery and my stomach grumble.
I didn't eat them. Only the ones in the small bowl. Plus one extra. This afternoon I am invited to a collaegue's home for 'komler'. Not really any clue as to what it is, but it is Norwegian. They will get a small Dutch gift in return! (Although I might save some. Scrap the might. I will save some for myself)
