Nauvoo Gingerbread

Nauvoo Gingerbread

When I first tasted gingerbread from the Scovil Bakery in Nauvoo, Illinois, I knew I wanted to make it at home. Just think: My great-great-great grandmother Lucy Morley may have eaten the same recipe from the store, which was next door to the recreation hall! Kind of like

WE LOVE GINGERBREAD! This week we had our mother-daughter activity days Christmas celebration, and so I made two recipes of gingerbread: our Finnish recipe (which, if you have ever had Anna’s brand cookies, you know what they are like…but homemade are better!) and Brune Kager, 

Mmmm: Finnish gingerbread cookies, for Mila

OK, I’m not very good at staying away from blogging, but this was for a really good reason. Lane and I recently visited a grade of school children to teach about Christmas in Finland. We brought Anna’s brand cookies as a taste of the holiday. One darling girl asked where we got the cookies. I told her mom which grocery store, but what I wish I could have brought were homemade Finnish gingerbread cookies. (But unfortunately, homemade is against school policy.)

So I wanted to post the recipe just for her!

Happy Smelling Baking Cookies,

Liz 🙂

P.S. (I borrowed this photo of Anna’s brand cookies until I can take one of my own of the recipe. This blogger made sandwich cookies out of her Anna’s.
