to treat your family and friends with this delicious gingerbread cookies for Christmas.
1 and ½ cups
Whole wheat flour
1 and ½ cups
½ cup (100 grams)
1 (room temperature)
2/3 cup (160 ml)
Ingredients for frosting:
1 and ½ cup
In a large bowl, sift whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder, and all the spices and set aside.
In another bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a wire whisk. Add the egg and molasses and beat until well combined. Gradually add the flour mixture, and mix until incorporated. Don’t over mix at this stage.
Wrap the prepared dough in a plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm 2-3 hours. Preheat oven to 350*F (170*C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Roll out the chilled dough between two sheets of parchment paper. Use cookie cutters to cut cookies into desired shapes. Place the shaped cookies on a parchment-lined baking tray. Chill again for 10 minutes. This will prevent the cookies from losing their shape.
Baking time will vary depending on the size of your cookies. Medium gingerbread cookies bake for 9-10 minutes, and mini cookies bake for about 7 minutes. They are done when the edges are just beginning to brown. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the royal icing, mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Make sure you sift the icing sugar before adding in. Spoon icing into a piping bag fitted with medium round tip, and pipe/decorate the cookies. Let it stand for about 20 minutes or until the icing is set.
