Cooking gingerbread cookies:

Step 1: beat sugar with butter.

Put the right amount of brown sugar and softened butter in a deep bowl. Beat the ingredients with a mixer at medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. The mass in the bowl should be light and airy.

Step 2: add the eggs, vanilla extract and corn syrup.

Then, beat in a bowl with sweet butter the right amount of unshell eggs, pour in the vanilla liquid extract and add the corn syrup. Beat all the ingredients with a mixer until fluffy and smooth. Turning on the mixer, increase the whipping speed gradually, starting with the smallest and ending with the highest as the mass in the bowl begins to thicken.

Step 3: prepare the dry ingredients.

Sift the desired amount of wheat flour into a clean and dry deep bowl using a fine mesh sieve. Then add food baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg to the same place. Stir the dry ingredients with a tablespoon until smooth.

Step 4: combine dry and liquid ingredients.

Using a tablespoon, gradually introduce the dry mixture into the liquid mass, while mixing the ingredients with a mixer at the lowest speed. When it becomes difficult for you to knead the dough, turn off the apparatus, clean its blades of flour pieces and continue kneading in a bowl with your hands.

Step 5: knead the dough.

Add all remaining dry ingredients to the bowl and knead the thick dough. Initially, the mixture will crumble into small pieces, but don’t worry, they will combine later and you will end up with a wonderful, fragrant shortbread dough. By consistency, it should be resilient and not stick to the hands.

Step 6: insist tests.

Using a knife, divide the dough into 2 equal parts and each individually wrap in plastic wrap. Now there are 2 options, you can leave the dough in the refrigerator for 48 hours before using it or put the dough in the freezer for 20-30 minutes before slicing cookies. It depends on when you are going to cook your dessert, this recipe uses rapid cooling of the dough.

Step 7: form gingerbread cookies.

After 20 - 30 minutes, sprinkle the surface of the kitchen table with a small amount of sifted wheat flour. Take two parts of the dough from the freezer, put one of them in the refrigerator, and put the second on the table. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a thick layer up to 5 millimeters. If you want softer cookies, roll the dough thicker 7 - 8 millimeters quite enough, and for crispy biscuits the dough should be thin. Then take any cookie cutter and use it to cut out the cookies. Preheat the oven up to 170 degrees Celsius.

Step 8: bake gingerbread cookies.

Cover a large non-stick pan with baking paper. Putting cookies on metal spatulas, put them on a baking sheet with an approximate distance from each other in 2 - 2, 5 centimeters. Place the baking sheet with the flour product in a preheated oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes the last three minutes carefully monitor the baking, at this time the cookies may dry out and burn. Remove the baking sheet with the finished cookies from the oven, helping yourself with a kitchen towel, put it on a cutting board previously laid on the kitchen table, and let your dessert cool down a bit, that's enough 10 minutes. Then put the cookies on a metal wire rack and let cool completely to room temperature. After you can decorate them as your heart desires and put on a plate. Mostly at Christmas, cookies are decorated with a gingerbread tree or served as a dessert. In the same way, prepare cookies from the second part of the dough.

Step 9: serve the gingerbread cookies.
