I have seen Rumford's baking powder mentioned more than once. Is it different from regular double acting baking powder? In what way? Can we substitute an ordinary double acting baking powder?

Any brand of double acting baking powder is fine.

Rumford is a name brand of double acting baking powder, any brand will work. Rumford contains no aluminum and tastes a bit better in recipes that call for a lot of baking powder, like biscuits.

Thank you. I use a Canadian brand that doesn't have any aluminium.

I'll be sharing my grandma's peppernuts recipe--they are not the German version, but rather Scandinavian (I think) version. I don't think I'll get around to making the German version...too late for them to season.

Oh, me. I'm supposed to be in the kitchen, getting the turkey ready for the oven. I knew I shouldn't click on this thread -- I only read down the first page and have to exercise some willpower to stop. But I must come back - tomorrow.

If I didn't have to curl tonight, I'd be baking! Tomorrow night! I'll start with the dough for peppernuts, then do Krumkake, and then sandbakler.

Usually I take orders for Christmas baking and I do baking as gifts for all those we want to give a thank you too. But this year baking of any kind was not going to happen - so... our youth group has said that they will do the baking I need for us for the holidays and a fellow baker has taken over my customers just for this year! I am so blessed!

These are called Peppernuts in my family. I don't know where my Swedish grandmother got the recipe, but she would always make these and send glass jars filled with them to anyone who couldn't make it home for Christmas. I'm sending some to my parents.

1 c water
1/2 c Karo dark syrup (I tried using the Golden Corn Syrup one finds in Canada--they weren't the same)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cardamon
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 T baking soda
1 lb butter
2-1/2 c brown sugar
7-8 c flour

1.Cream butter, sugar, and syrup.
2. Add water.
3. Mix spices and baking soda with about 1 c of the flour--add to creamed mixture.
4. Add remaining flour. Divide into two pieces. Form a log about 2" x 2" x 8" and wrap in waxed paper. Freeze until firm.
5. To slice cut 1/8 inch thick slices. Cut these into 12-16 pieces (about the size of a square dime, if there were such a thing!).
6. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 5-7 minutes at 400.

Watch carefully, they burn! These are crisp little cookies (and yes, I like to slice the dough and eat that too!).
