ginger bread cookies

There were no posts on this blog for quite a while but Christmas has put me back into the mood of posting here. The Almond Ginger Bread Cookies fit the season very well. I baked them several times lately and I must say they go away fast. Not only that they are easy to make, they also last in a Tupperware pretty well.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

baking time: 15 minutes

difficulty: easy

Ingredients fot 16 cookies:

  • 4 eggs
  • 4,6 oz brown sugar
  • 3,2 oz honey
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon gingerbread spice
  • 14 oz ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ready made lemon frosting
  • Rum

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 356 F.
Put the eggs, honey, salt, baking powder and ginger bread spice into a bowl and blend with a ixer until creamy. Then slowly add the almonds. The mixture will turn into a thick pure like tough. Season season with a few spoons full of rum.

Place some baking paper onto a baking tray. Scoop a spoon full of dough onto the paper and even it with wet fingers. Repeat until the tray is filled.
Bake for 15 minutes.

Feel free to decorate them with lemon frosting or chocolate.
