Gingerbread Cookies will infuse your home with the smell of Christmas. Just a couple of ingredients and a couple of minutes to make! —VibrantPlate

  • Serves 4
  • 300 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons gingerbread spices
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder
  • 200 grams butter (room temperature)
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 100 grams honey
  • 1 egg (free range)
In This Recipe
  1. Combine flour and baking soda, add gingerbread spices and cacao powder. Mix well.
  2. Cut room-temperature butter into small chunks and place in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar and honey and mix with a mixer until well-combined and fluffy. Mix in an egg and combine well.
  3. Preheat oven to 170°C / 340°F.
  4. After 30 minutes take dough out of the fridge and roll out to about 0.5 cm thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out desired cookie shapes (I used a 10 cm gingerbread girl cookie cutter). Place cookies onto a baking tray covered with baking paper. Repeat until you've used up all your cookie dough.
  5. Place baking tray in preheated oven and bake at 170°C / 340°F for about 10 minutes, or until the cookies turn golden brown. Remove from oven and place cookies on a cooling rack to cool.
  6. When the cookies are cooled down, decorate with sugar icing.
