Ginger Recipe

A touch of ginger, a pinch of cinnamon, a dash of clove and a heaping spoonful of love – these ingredients are the foundation to Anna's Thins – the most beloved ginger cookie in the world.

Our master bakers use the finest, natural ingredients and continue to follow the original recipe. Our attention to detail and our focus on tradition are what make Anna's Thins everyone's favourite ginger cookie.

Like many Swedish housewives in the 1920's, Anna Karlsson baked ginger cookies at Christmas from a recipe handed down from her mother. Her cookies became so popular that Anna and her sister started baking them year-round. In 1929 they opened a small bakery in Stockholm, Sweden. Ever since, Anna's has been a magical journey supplying cookies to Europe and North America for nearly a century. Today Anna's Thins worldwide is owned by Lotus Bakeries, known for it's its line of strong, authentic brands.

Anna's Thins are on the way to conquering the world! Today more than 5,000 tons of Thins are produced each year, which translates into more than 1 billion cookies.
