Gingerbread biscuits : recipe from Rosalind of bake Off Italia

As you have already understood I love Christmas and everything that concerns it just like the famous Gingerbread cookies!
I took the recipe directly from Rosalind, the competitor of the fifth edition of Bake Off Italia, so I went on the safe side, plus it gave me some advice to make a perfect icing for decoration!


I made a small variation about the recipe. Since I did not have brown sugar, I decided to put 150g of granulated sugar instead of 100g of caster + 100g of brown sugar.


Ingredients for cookies:

  1. Melt the sugar with honey, orange juice and spices in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Turn off the heat and add the butter cut into small pieces. Add the bicarbonate and mix quickly.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl and let it cool. Then add the flour and the salt and knead.
  4. Store the dough in the fridge for 2 hours.
  5. Then roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it reaches a thickness of about 3 mm. Cut the biscuits with the shapes you prefer and place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  6. With a toothpick, make a small hole on each biscuit at the apex, in case you want to hang them on the tree with a ribbon.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes at 170 ° C.
  8. Once cooked and cooled decorate with real icing.

Ingredients for real icing:
  1. Pour the egg white and sugar into a bowl and work at a minimum speed for 5 minutes.
  2. Depending on your preference (if you want the most liquid ice), add a few drops of water.
  3. Color the real ice at your leisure using gel dyes.
  4. Once the consistency and the desired color are obtained, you can decorate the cookies!
