A new Christmas cookie!

Adapted from Anne's Food

2 T. ground Cinnamon
1 T. ground Ginger
1 T. ground Cloves
1 t. ground Cardamom
1/2 t. Allspice
1 T. Baking Soda

1 1/3 C. Salted Butter
1 1/3 C. White Sugar
2/3 C. Brown Sugar

1 small Egg
the peel of one Lemon
300 ml. Golden Syrup
300 ml. Heavy Cream
8 C. Flour

Day one: Sift the spices and the baking soda in a small bowl.  In a separate larger bowl, mix butter with the two sugars, add the spices and the egg.  Add lemon, golden syrup, cream and finally flour.  Dough will become very solid.  Remove dough and separate into three sections, forming a log or discs, wrap in plastic, and chill overnight in the refrigerator.

Day two. Take out each section of dough one at a time and roll out on a floured workface.  Cut out cookies and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake in the oven, at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, depending on size.

This time last year: Turkey Enchiladas
