Christmas Calendar 2017 - "Pepper nuts" a la Urtekram

I have been filling the first Christmas baking of 2017 into my Christmas cookie tin collection. I have started of with "pepper nuts", which is a classic/traditional Christmas cookie here in Denmark. Previously I have baking Giant pepper cookies and Liquorice pepper cookies as versions of pepper nuts/cookies.

I found a metallic tin containing the spice mixture for pepper nuts in my local supermarket, so I decided to test out it´s recipe.

Later I have been using this pepper nut spice mixture for the creation of these pepper nut scones.

"Pepper nuts" a la Urtekram:
  • 150 g sugar
  • 150 g butter - diced into smaller pieces
  • 300 g wheat (cake) flour
  • 2 tablespoon Peberbød spicemixture from Urtekram
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  1. Heat up the fan oven to 200'C.
  2. Add sugar, flour and spice mixture into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the diced butter pieces. Rub the butter pieces into flour-sugar mixture using only your fingers (not the palms of your hand), until the mix resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Add in the egg and water. Knead the dough until it is homogeneous.
  5. Divided the dough into smaller portion.
  6. Roll each portion into a size of 3 cm in diameter.
  7. Cut each roll into 1-2 cm length. Roll each piece into a round ball.
  8. Cover the baking trays with baking parchment. 
  9. Bake the pepper nuts at 200'C for approx. 12-15 minutes. After 6 minutes baking shift the position of the baking tray in the oven.
  10. Cool down the pepper nuts.
  11. Place the pepper nuts in an airtight container.
