    Well I started the process 03/11/19 and made the cookies today. Didn’t have a lovely heart shape cutter, but made 59 cookies and will cover in chocolate in a few days. Thanks so much for the recipe. I had to try one and it was a gorgeous flavour! The Hjorthornssalt was a strange smell to me while rolling the dough, but can’t taste in the cookies.

    • Yes, I saw your picture on facebook. Looks wonderful 😀

      The hjortetakssalt smells like ammonia, but it disappears during baking 🙂

    These are very interesting! What is it that you used for the Santa? I couldn’t quite hear in the video what it is…Is it similar to a transfer sheet? I am wondering what I could use here in Canada to decorate. Thank you. I might make mine for Valentine’s Day even though they are a Christmas cookie. 🙂

    • They are called Victorian Scraps. In Denmark we call them glansbilleder which literally means glossy pictures.

      The ones I use are food safe. I wasn’t able to find them anywhere but in Danish web shops.

    Seems there’s a typo in either the ingredients or the instructions as one says ammonium bicarbonate and the other says carbonate. Same for potassium.
