Form it in the shape of a ball, spread it with a knife on the table sprinkled with flour, about 5-6 mm thick.

Cut shapes with what you have and what you like - here I have a set of Tupperware shapes, very nice and compact.

I like that after they are made they do not deform at all, they only grow slightly.

Step 12

Beat a egg white with 3-4 tablespoons of powdered sugar - to make the icing - this is optional. According to me, I would powder them with sugar and that's it, but as you like and want.

Grease, draw or decorate as you want the gingerbread while it is hot, to catch the egg white well and to dry quickly.

Step 14

For a safer result, I kept them for another 10 minutes at 180 degrees, to harden and disinfect the egg whites.

Step 15

The only problem with egg whites is that they get wet quickly in the winter, so see how you do it - or powder them with sugar, or dry them well on top, or store them in a dry place.
