Gingerbread men

New Year is getting closer and closer! A wonderful time for gifts, congratulations, and a variety of goodies will come very soon..
I bring to your attention cookies, which are not only very tasty, but also beautiful in a festive way.
And how much joy it will bring to children, both while eating and while decorating.
And decorating it is a special pleasure, where you can realize any fantasies.
From the specified amount of ingredients, 20-25 pieces are obtained.

  • 100 g butter
  • 100g sugar (I used brown)
  • 100 g honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 350-400 g flour


Grind butter with sugar.

Add honey.

Add eggs.

Add ginger and cinnamon.

Add baking powder and flour.
Knead the dough.

Roll out the dough (if the dough is rolled out thicker, the cookies will be softer, if thinner – crisp.)

Cut out figures using molds.
If there are no molds, you can cut a stencil out of paper, put on the dough, and cut out figures.

Grease a baking sheet or cover with baking paper.
Transfer figures carefully.
If the dough is rolled out thinly, the figures are difficult to transfer.
In this case, the dough can be rolled out on baking paper, cut out figures, remove excess dough, and transfer the figures on the paper to a baking sheet..
Put in an oven preheated to 180 degrees.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Decorate ready-made little men to taste.
I decorated with pastry pencils and pastry sprinkles.
Also, you can decorate with whipped egg white with sugar (beat 1 egg white with 50 g of sugar), melted chocolate, coconut, etc..

Enjoy your meal!
