At Christmas, give your child a box of such cookies, think about how happy he/she will be? ! Reference component: depending on size Baking: the middle layer of the oven, fire up and down 180 degrees, about 12 minutes
Pour all the ingredients for making gingerbread into a bowl
Mix well by hand and become dough
When the dough is first formed, the surface of the dough will be rough. Continue patiently for a while until the dough surface is smooth. Put the kneaded dough into the refrigerator and relax for 1 hour.
The loose dough was placed on a chopping board and rolled into a thin sheet of about 0.3 cm thick. (If the chopping board is not big enough, you can divide the dough into small portions and divide them into pieces.)
Use a mold of various shapes to engrave a cookie model on a good dough
Discharge the carved gingerbread on the baking sheet, mix the eggs and mix the water to form the egg water. Brush a layer of egg water on the gingerbread, let stand for 20 minutes, then brush a layer of egg water, put it into a preheated oven, fire the upper layer 180 degrees, 12 minutes or so, bake it to your favorite Color degree can be taken out
Once the cookies are baked and cooled, you can start decorating. Mix the protein and powdered sugar, add the lemon juice, and continue to send it into a protein icing. (This step is very simple, you don't have to use an electric egg beater, just use a manual egg beater.)
A good icing, the consistency can be adjusted as needed. For example, the icing sugar used to brush the bottom color can be adjusted to a little bit, so add a little more lemon juice. The icing sugar used to draw lines and draw patterns can be thicker, so adding a little lemon juice is OK.
The icing sugar used to brush the base color is adjusted to the consistency as shown in the figure (the eggbeater will be lifted and the frosting will drop thickly)
According to your own needs, add different colors of food coloring in the icing to make different colors of icing. The icing on the bottom of the brush can be placed directly in the bowl, used to draw the icing of the line, of course, it is loaded into the flower bag.
The method of brushing the base color: use a brush to lick the frosting and brush it on the surface of the biscuit. When the frosting is dry,
The method of drawing lines: After the frosting of the underlying color is dried, cut a small mouth at the front end of the flower bag and squeeze out the desired pattern on the biscuit. (Of course, you can also draw the line directly on the biscuit without brushing the background color, let us play it at will)
1. Gingerbread dough needs to be relaxed for a while before it is smashed, otherwise it is easy to retract when it is opened and cut with a mold. Similarly, it is best to relax for a while before baking, otherwise it may be easily deformed. 2. If the shape and size of a plate of biscuits are different, the small biscuits will be baked first. Once the small biscuits are almost baked, remove the baking tray, remove the baked biscuits, and put the remaining biscuits back in the oven to continue baking. 3, the surface of the biscuit can also not brush the egg water. The difference is that if the egg water is brushed, the surface of the biscuit will have a luster. 4, brown sugar powder, can rarely buy, in fact, buy brown sugar in the supermarket, go home and use the grinding cup of the food processor to make powder. Ginger powder and cinnamon powder are available in supermarkets, and the dosage can be increased or decreased according to your own taste. Traditional gingerbread will add some spices such as nutmeg powder and clove powder to the ingredients, but not everyone can get used to their taste. You can decide whether to add it according to your own taste. 5, after engraving the biscuits with the mold, the remaining dough, can be re-smashed into a group, opened (preferably first let stand for 20 minutes), continue to engrave.
