IngredientsEdit

Decoration (optional)Edit

ProcedureEdit

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl except one egg and mix until a smooth dough is obtained.
  2. Put the last egg in a cup or small bowl and beat it.
  3. Divide the dough into five or six portions. Take one portion and roll it out about 3 mm thick.
  4. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Transfer cookies to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. When the baking sheet is full, use the beaten egg to glaze the cookies.
  6. Bake at 180°C for a few minutes, until the cakes are light brown.
  7. Repeat the remaining dough.

DecorationEdit

  1. Mix the egg white and sugar. You may need to add more sugar if the mixture is not firm enough.
  2. Place the icing in a piping bag or other plastic bag. Cut a small hole (~1 mm) in the tip.
  3. Squeeze the bag to pipe out the icing, and use to decorate the cookies.
