Default Finnish Gingerbreads

(gingerbreads and old gingerbread molds which my family have used for decades)

150 g sugar (1 3/4 dl)
250 g dark syrup (1,5 dl)
1 tsp ginger
3 tsp cinnamon
0,5 tsp cloves
(1 tsp cardamom)
2 tsp baking soda
150 g butter
1 egg
500 - 600 g wheat flour (10 - 12 dl)*

*Note: I usually use only 7 - 8 dl wheat flours. The dough will be softer and easier to handle.

Boil the sugar, molasses and spices in a saucepan. more soda and stir until the entire mixture is a foam.

Put the butter in a bowl and pour the hot mixture on top. Stir until the butter melts. Add the egg. Cool the mixture well. Add the flour and beat until quite hard dough.

Roll out the dough into a thin sheet. Take the pieces by molds. Move cookies to the baking tray.

Bake at +225 C for about 8 minutes.
