Easy Gingerbread Cookies

I planned to make the traditional gingerbread recipe, colored glaze. But I also wanted a simple, quick recipe, without too much refrigeration, to keep the shape when baked and with good taste.

I stayed with this recipe and I'm happy - it turned out delicious, with a pleasant honey taste, and if you make it thinner it will be a slightly crispier gingerbread. If you shape it thicker, it will be a soft gingerbread - so according to everyone's preferences.


4 pieces
Powdered sugar
200 g
9 tbsp
or 150g
Baking soda
1 tsp

Cinnamon powder
1 tsp
and 1 tablespoon of cocoa, if you want something browner
Lemon juice
1 tbsp

And finally add the flour, mix with a spoon or spatula first.

Add in 2-3 rounds, so that the dough does not come out too dry and hard - the amount needed may vary and depends on the brand of flour.

Sprinkle more flour on the table and remove the dough on the table - it will be a little more sticky, to have more flour besides the 500g of the recipe.

Step 10

Bake them in the preheated oven before - no more than 8-10 minutes - if you keep them too long they will harden.

Step 11

After you have solved all the dough and all the biscuits are baked, we move on to the side with the decoration.

You can make the glaze by beating 2 egg whites with 100g powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice - and decorate, grease as you like. Here be sure to dry them well, otherwise they will be a bit sticky and get your hands dirty when you eat them.

Or buy colored sugar paste for decoration - I took the set from Dr. Oetker, you can see it in the picture.

It was more comfortable and quick to work with, in addition to more colors, interesting for children as well.

The pasta dries very quickly, so in 15 minutes you can serve the most delicious members.
