gingerbread cookies recipe

Quantity for about 60 Gingerbread Cookies
360 g flour '00
75 g granulated sugar
75 g brown sugar
150 g cold unsalted butter
150 g dark molasses (alternatively 150 g honey)
1 egg
2 pinches salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves

For the Royal Icing (Biscuit Decorations and Sugar Hearts)
150-170 g powdered sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
30 g fresh egg white
red food coloring or any color of your choice

For decorations:
baking paper
2-3 disposable piping bags
round nozzle with a very narrow hole

If you have it, do it with your mixer
First of all, put the flour in the mixer (keep 10 g for the work surface), or if you are proceeding by hand, arrange it in a heap on a work surface.

Then add the powdered spices, brown sugar, granulated sugar and salt

Then give a high speed mixer shot, a few seconds to create a sandblast
(if you are proceeding without a mixer, sandblast with a fork, without touching the dough with your hands).

Finally add the molasses and egg to the sandblasting, then again, give the mixer a turn at high speed
(if you are proceeding with your hands kneading quickly without overheating the dough, mixing the ingredients)

Finally, transfer the dough onto a floured work surface with the last 10 grams of flour and quickly form a ball. The dough is soft, it must be just like that, wrap it in cling film and let it rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Formation of Gingerbread Cookies
After the indicated time, flour a cold work surface (such as marble, aluminum, plastic). Divide the dough into 2-3 parts and roll out one part at a time

Roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin to a thickness of 4-5 mm and cut with a lightly floured cookie cutter

Finally, immediately bake the first pan in the oven at 180 degrees for 12 minutes.
The freshly baked cookies will be soft, let them cool on a wire rack or outside the pan; they will solidify in a short time but the heart will remain slightly soft.
How to decorate gingerbreads
First of all, let the Gingerbread Cookies cool completely before proceeding with the decorations, at least 3 - 4 hours.
Then prepare the Royal Ice and decorate your Gingerbread cookies
