GINGERBREAD cookies with cinnamon




Ingredients:


450 g of flour

200g butter

100 g of brown sugar

1 egg

80 g of honey

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger


Instructions:


  1. Sift the flour, ginger, and cinnamon. So you will already have the preparations when you need them. Use a strainer for this. This step helps us aerate the flour and prevent it from creating lumps in the dough.

  2. Beat the butter together with the brown sugar with the help of a whisk. Beat both ingredients until the mixture is paler and slightly fluffy. Add the egg and honey, continue mixing until all the ingredients are homogeneous.

  3. Add the dry ingredients that you had previously reserved. Lower the speed of the mixer to the minimum, add this mixture little by little and beat until you do not see any remaining flour.

  4. Divide the resulting dough into two portions, flatten them a little and wrap them with plastic wrap. Let them rest in the fridge for about 15 minutes.

  5. Roll out the dough until it is 5 or 6 mm thick. Once stretched, let the dough rest for 1 hour in the fridge. This way the dough will be very firm when cutting it and you make sure that the cookies don’t lose their shape during baking.

  6. After the resting time, cut the dough into the shape you want. Place a sheet of parchment paper on the baking sheet. Arrange the cookies on it, leaving 2 cm apart.

  7. Bake the cookies at 180ºC for about 15 minutes or until you see the edges begin to brown.

  8. When they’re done, remove the tray from the oven and let it rest for about 5 minutes. Then you can decorate them to your liking.
