Hello everyone! Today I’m going to share with you my recipe for great gingerbread cookies! Enjoy!
350g of plain flour
2 tsp of ground cinnamon
160g of sugar
A pinch of salt
1/2 a tsp of bicarbonate of soda
150g of butter
150g of honey
2 tsp of ground ginger
Sieve the flour and the sugar in a bowl and add the spices, the salt and the bicarbonate. Add the cold butter and the honey, too.
Beat everything at a medium speed until you get a crumbly consistency, then add the egg and keep beating until the dough starts to come together. Get your hands in the dough and make a ball. Wrap it in clean film and put it in the fridge to rest for 2 hours. After the 2 hours, take it out the fridge and roll it with a rolling pin. You want the dough to be about 5mm high. Cut your shapes of choice and put them in the oven at 180°C for about 10-12 minutes. If you want, you can decorate them with some icing (beat together one egg white and 150g of icing sugar and put them in a piping bag).
And here they are! They taste delicious and are so Christmassy! Plus, the gingermen look adorable! Hope you liked the recipe, if you do these cookies make sure to let me know in the comments!
For now, this is it. Goodbye!
