It’s the second weekend in December and you want to do something to increase your Christmas spirit?🎄❄️
Run into your kitchen and turn it into Santa’s Gingerbread factory in a few minutes. Soon you can inhale the smell of Christmas and taste a little bit of heaven😍😉🍪
What are you waiting for? Let’s try one of my favorite recipes around Christmas!
125 g honey
180 g sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
8 g vanilla sugar
150 g butter
4 spoons of Milk
👉🏼 Heat up these ingredients slowly in a pot, pour the mass into bowl and mix it.
3 tbsp bitter almond aroma
2 tbsp grounded cinnamon
1 dash anise
1 dash cloves
1 spoon unsweetened cacao powder
8 g baking powder
400 g flour (I prefer rye or spelt)
100 g cornstarch
👉🏼 mix those ingredients, sift them, and stir in 2/3 spoon by spoon into the mass (from step 1). Knead under the rest on your working surface. Add some more flour if the dough is still too sticky.
Spread out the dough (it should be a 1/2 cm thick layer ❗️❕❗️not too thin, better thicker❗️❕❗️) and cut small rectangles gingerbread-men or whatever you want.
You might want to decorate them with almonds or raisins.
Now bake them for approximately 10-15 minutes at 350-400 F (175-200 C). This depends on your oven and which texture you like best.🍪
Store them in an air-tight tin for up to two weeks. You can store an apple with the biscuits to make sure, the gingerbread keeps it’s texture.🍎
I like to eat them warm, so if you do them yourself you should really try them immediately. Oh, and don’t forget to try the dough😉
Have a nice advent-weekend🎄🎄🎄
