Author Notes: This is definitely the best time to bake some cookies, Christmas time is perfect to make sweets to dip or to crunch every now and then but it is even more fun to give them away as gifts. A dinner with girlfriends to wish a merry Christmas and give Christmas gifts is the best occasion to bake a big amount of cookies. My choice, not very innovative but with a personal touch, has been gingerbread men. I used in part buckwheat flour and the decorations were made using little sugar snowflakes and stars, as I'm not very familiar with icing.

Serves: 10

  • 5.26 ounces Buckwheat flour
  • 10.58 ounces all purpose flour
  • 5.26 ounces rice malt syrup (or honey)
  • 4.06 ounces cubes of butter at room temperature
  • 4.59 ounces muscovado sugar (cane or dark)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon chopped candied ginger (or 2 teaspoons of ginger powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  1. Mix ginger with half the sugar. Put the butter into the robot and make it to cream withthe other half of the sugar, add the ginger milkshakes and sugar, mix with the butter until it make everything soft.
  2. Pour in the malt (or honey) and mix well to, so when the egg and flour well absorbed even in three time and previously mixed with spices and baking soda.Mix everything until you get a 'mix well homogeneous, soft but compact. Let it rest wrapped in a sheet of plastic in the fridge for half an hour but also beyond, you can prepare the day ahead. Taking and cut only the part you want to draw the other place it in the fridge.
  3. Sprinkle the surface lightly and work the dough, spread with a rolling pin to a thickness of half a centimeter. cutter and cut that you will support the pan covered with parchment paper. Bake at 180 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Continue until you run out of pastry.
