If like me you love little Christmas cookies, gingerbread cookies, with the good taste of gingerbread, you will love this recipe. The taste of these cookies is delicious and the dough, in addition to being very easy to make, is also very easy to work with.
You get very pretty cookies, which you can give the shape you want. Little men, snowflakes like me, or even fir trees, stars, snowmen… Let your creativity do the talking.
You can also decorate them with royal icing, a mixture of icing sugar and egg white. So decorate, the result is really very aesthetic.
These crispy little cookies keep very well and will be perfect for giving, whether decorated or not.
I advise you to enjoy them with a good coffee or tea. It’s awful!
