What could be better on New Year's Eve than flavored gingerbread? This tradition came to us from the West and comfortably entrenched in Russian homes. Gingerbread baking is a special time when you can get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy spending time with family and children. Moreover, even the youngest housewives can cope with such a culinary recipe.

The recipe is simple (the dough is prepared in the same way as for the gingerbread house):

  • 300 g runny honey;
  • 4 eggs;
  • 250g granulated sugar;
  • 2 tsp ground ginger;
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon;
  • 200 butter;
  • 750 gr. white flour;
  • vanillin;
  • 2 tsp cocoa (optional);
  • 4 tsp baking powder;
  • 2 tsp grated orange zest.

This dosage is for a large number of gingerbread (for a large family). If you want less, it is better to reduce the amount of ingredients by half.

Mix softened butter with sugar, honey and eggs. Mix all dry ingredients with flour, knead the dough and put in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.

Afterroll out the dough with a layer of 0.5-0.7 mm.

Cut out figures with molds…

Or decorate the figurines with stamps. By the way, the same molds are also suitable for New Year's crafts from dough.

Put on baking paper and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees.

Gingerbread cookies are ready, decorate them with powdered sugar and the New Year's masterpiece is ready, but you can come up with something more interesting!

For example, bake stars of different sizes and make a gingerbread tree out of them!

These beauties can be assembled from gingerbread and decorated with icing.

Or make an edible Christmas wreath to serve on the New Year's table.

Please note that you can paint the gingerbread with icing only after they have completely cooled down.

You can make holes and hang gingerbread on the Christmas tree.
