Gingerbread Trees



Hello folks, this week as I have a little more time I’ll leave you here some more Christmas recipes and some may use New Year’s Eve. With the Christmas time its very little and I loved that day was longer 32 hours =) I hope you enjoy!


350 g flour
150 g of sugar
120 g butter
30 g cocoa
1 large egg
0.5 dl of water
1 pinch of ginger powder
1 pinch of clove powder
1 pinch of nutmeg
1 pinch of fennel
1 pinch of baking powder
1 pinch of salt
Flour for sprinkling

Pour the flour into a bowl, add the sugar, butter, water, egg, pinch of salt, ginger powder, clove, nutmeg, fennel and baking powder. Mix well until a homogeneous dough forms.
Then spread the dough on a flour-dusted tabletop, leaving it about 0.5 cm thick and cut it into a star or other cutter to taste. Put them in trays dusted with flour and bake in preheated oven at 180ÂșC for 20 minutes or until they are cooked and golden brown.
Remove from the oven, peel with a spatula, let cool and serve. To offer, use a decorated box, as you see in the photo.


As I used larger cutter only gave 12 trees =) I used smarts to decorate, sugar in powder and those icing pens that are bought.
