My family’s exclusive gingerbread recipe

In the last couple of years I’ve became famous among friends and family members of my weird implementation of gingerbread. Besides making the usual Christmas things like snowmen, stars and boots, I always try to bring some fun to the holiday feasts. So I found some DIY ideas that seemed easy to make (they never are at the end!). That led to a series of gingerbread ninjas, Yoda, R2D2, a Batman sign and reindeers that everybody considered dogs. Although they were more sweet then pretty, there are some of my creations I’m actually proud of. For example I once made a 3D Christmas tree that looked particularly handsome, and I make little ladies holding hazelnut in their hands every year, they are my favourite. Whatever results I have after baking I can always say the effort comes from my heart. 

Here are the ingredients you need for the perfect, immediately soft gingerbread:
/for 3 pans of pastry/

  • 70 dkg flour
  • 20 dkg powdered sugar
  • 1 coffee-spoon of baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 sac of gingerbread spice mix
  • 20 dkg margarine
  • 5 tablespoon of honey

After procuring all these things here is what you need to do:

  1. Mix the powdered sugar with the margarine first, then add the flour and the baking soda.
  2. Add the gingerbread spice mix as well.
  3. Warm up the honey (but don’t boil it!) and add it to your paste.
  4. Mix everything well.
  5. Put it into the fridge for 2 hours.
  6. Extend the pastry till you get 3 mm thickness.
  7. And now let the madness of decoration begin! You can use walnuts, edible pearls, icing or even marzipan.

Bon appétit!
