Pepperkaker are thin, crispy cookies, with a touch of spices consumed during Christmas in Norway.
In a medium saucepan, heat butter, sugar, and corn syrup, until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and add vinegar and baking soda. Cook for 2 more minutes. Turn off the heat, add cream and spices and let the mixture cool.
Once cool, add the flour little by little and mix with a wooden ladle.
Divide the dough into 2 or 4 portions. Working with one portion at the time, roll the dough until very thin. Use a cookie cutter or a small round lid, and cut.
Place cookies on prepared trays and bake for 10 minutes.
The heart cutter I used was very small, measuring 2cm / 0.7inches.
If using a bigger cookie cutter, you'll get less cookies.
