December 22, 2019 - Christmas gingerbread cookies are one of the delicacies that, as we prepare them, bring a festive mood to our home. Adding colors and taste, we are glad that gingerbread cookies need to be prepared a few days in advance, so they can soften before we use them to decorate the Christmas table. The smell of cinnamon, cloves, nuts, and ginger fill the house, and one thing is certain - it's Christmas time!
 
So, how do we make gingerbread cookies? We decided to share our tried-and-true recipe with you. Of course, the decoration is what will make your gingerbread special, but above all, here's what you need to know.

Christmas gingerbread cookies

 
300 g flour
100 g of melted butter
One egg
100 g of sugar
1 tbsp of vanillin sugar
One bag of baking powder
One teaspoon cinnamon
Two teaspoons ground ginger
One teaspoon cloves
One teaspoon of nuts
Four tablespoons of honey
3-4 tablespoons of cocoa
 
Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, and spices in a big bowl and add the whipped egg, butter, honey, and powdered sugar. Knead the dough. Cover the obtained mixture with transparent foil and leave to warm for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Then roll it and remove the biscuits with molds of various shapes.
 
Put the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake them at 160-180'C for about 10-15 minutes. Remove the cookies and transfer them immediately to the oven grate to cool.

Christmas gingerbread cookies - What do we need for decoration?

For decoration, whisk egg whites in firm snow and add sugar and lemon juice. Stir until a smooth mass is obtained. If desired, separate into several pots and paint with different colors. Pour the mixture into a confectionery bag, or a  plastic bag that slices off the top. Decorate Christmas gingerbread cookies only when they are cold, and then allow them to dry for at least one day at room temperature. You can then pack them if you want to gift them to someone. Or even before Christmas, you can serve them with tea. Enjoy holiday colors, scents, and flavors.
