Let`s try together. This is our receipt.

You will need the following ingredients for 30 pieces:

FOR GINGERBREAD:

Flour 250 gr

Cinnamon powder – 2 tsp.

Carnation powder – 1/4 tsp.

Nutmeg grated – 1/4 tsp.

Ginger ground – 1 tsp.

Salt – 1/4 tsp.

Sugar – 60 g

Cream or milk – 10 g

Honey – 50 g

Butter – 50 g

Egg – 1 pc., Shake in a glass with a fork

FOR A GLAZE:

Egg white – 1 pc.

Sugar powder – 200 g

Lemon juice – 2-3 tbsp. l.

DIRECTIONS:

Mix the flour with all the spices and salt. In the saucepan combine sugar, cream, honey and butter, melt on low heat. Allow the syrup to cool and mix it with the egg.

Pour the SYRUP into a DRY MIX and knead the dough with your hands. Roll out on a table, generously sprinkled with flour. Ready gingerbread is hard and crunchy, so the dough should be rolled as thin as possible, at 23 millimeters. The finished cookie almost does not change in size after baking.

Cut out the gingerbread cookies with the forms for the biscuits; put them on the baking sheet.

OVEN  the cookies IN HEAT UP TO 160 ° C  for about ten minutes and allow to cool completely before decorating. So gingerbread will turn out more friable. If you want to increase their firmness of the cookies, bake them a little longer – about 15 minutes.

After decorating the cakes, the glaze completely freezes in 23 minutes and it is almost impossible to damage it.
