Mix the honey, the sugar and the butter together and cook gently in a saucepan, stirring constantly, then allow to cool completely. In time you can mix the remaining ingredients together and then knead with the honey-sugar mixture to a smooth dough. Then wrap the dough with cling film and let it rest for about 2 hours.

After 2 hours, roll out the dough and start sticking out the gingerbread hearts, stars or males out of it. Place the results on baking tray and bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes.

The pastry can be decorated only when it has cooled completely. During this time, let’s see what the heavenly scent of gingerbread is…

Other ideas that might inspire you can be found in the attached pictures. We only tell you how you can make the icing yourself.

It is quite simple: water and powdered sugar are mixed into a paste that you can then use to paint the gingerbread. Plan the beautiful ideas in advance, because the sugar is fast hard.
