I voted apple pie in the poll but if give the choice, I would probably opt for a chocolate chip cookie or brownie if these were being offered at Thanksgiving! I am a chocolate fan, so anything chocolate would be my first choice.
I have borrowed my mother’s old Norwegian recipe for Pepperkaker, which are basically gingerbread cookies. I am not sure why her recipe is better than any other I’ve ever tasted; maybe it’s because she’s my mamma. They taste of more vanilla than others, and that may also play a part. I make them each year, though, for Thanksgiving and for Christmas, and have for years. They’re very good with vanilla ice cream.
