Nutritional Value

Traditionally on New Year's Eve in Latvia the honey and spice cookies called "Piparkukas", which literally translates to pepperoni cookies, but in reality, spices are added in different flavors. Some are sweeter and some are mouth-burners (not for little children). In any store you will come across packages of such brown cookies or ready flavored dough (we bake at home with the kids). Today I'm going to offer a soft version of "peparkucas", I even like this one better. The dough can be prepared in advance and kept in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

How to cook ginger pie "peparkucas" step by step with photos

So, the ginger is the highlight of the program. Of course, recipes often call for dried ginger, but to me there's nothing more flavorful than freshly grated ginger. A good spoonful and a handful, unless, of course, there are ginger detractors in the house.

Put the oil and honey on low heat and stir until dissolved. Even candied honey will do.

Crush cardamom and cloves into crumbs.

Continuing to stir, I added plum jam (or any syrup, jam).

It's appropriate to add some sour cidonia (Latvian mini-aiva) here. Or any candied fruits.

Ginger and lemon in general go well with lemon, so cidonia-fruit is similar in taste to lemon, very sour. I have syrup slices.

This is what the slices look like in syrup.

And this is how it looks in the fall, plucked from the bush. Almost everyone grows it in their gardens.

In the fall, cydonia is divided into slices, covered with sugar (you can boil it) and so stored in syrup.

These are all digressions. Now add the cinnamon. It is present in "peparkucas" be sure to.

Pour in the milk.

Beat in the egg yolks or as a substitute for the egg powder.

I also added the lemon flavoring from Dr. Oetker.

Add flour and baking powder from Dr. Oetker.

A little bit of vanilla sugar from Dr. Oetker.

Mix the sour creamy dough.

Spread the thick batter into a 24cm x 17cm greased baking sheet.

Bake until dry on a skewer half an hour at 180*.

Once cool, slice into portions.

I cut it into mini slices. Serving like this would be perfect for a buffet.

Sprinkle with powder after it cools.

The pie has a little crust, but it's just as soft and flavorful inside.

Appropriate to serve with apple-raspberry tea.

The pie is very flavorful. Ginger is tangible.
