Cooking gingerbread men:
Step 1: Prepare a template for the gingerbread men.It will be more convenient and easier to cut people from the dough if you already have a template ready. So the little men will turn out the same, and you will spend much less energy. The template is very simple to make - we cut out a little man’s figure from a thick sheet of paper with scissors. You can even print the proposed photo, and make a template for it. Set the finished template aside and move on.
Step 2: Prepare the dough for the gingerbread men.
Step 3: Form the Gingerbread Men ...
Step 4: Make icing and decorate the gingerbread men.While the little men are cooling down, we can easily make the icing - we separate the egg white from the egg and beat it with a mixer in a strong foam. Then add the icing sugar and continue whisking. When you get a uniform cream, pour the lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Glaze is ready! With the help of a confectionery syringe, we apply glaze on the little men, drawing them faces, clothes with buttons and anything that suits your imagination. When all the little men are decorated, it is necessary to freeze the glaze - you can dry the cookies in the oven, or you can just leave it at room temperature for several hours, or better all night.
Step 5: Serve the gingerbread men.Gingerbread men can crunch just like that, or can be combined with tea, milk, cocoa or coffee. Please the children, surprise the guests - this is the perfect solution for a dessert on the New Year's table. Enjoy your meal!
- - You can change some ingredients, such as butter for vegetable, baking soda for baking powder. But the main ingredient - ginger - must be present in any recipe, it is thanks to him that this cookie has such a popular taste.
- - Instead of a cookie template, you can use ordinary cookie cutters.
- - If you do not have a confectionery syringe, you can replace it with an ordinary culinary bag - cut a corner at a clean plastic bag, and squeeze out the icing with it.
- - Colored glaze can be obtained using dyes. If the cookies turned out to be large, then the colored buttons can be depicted using m & m's.
