Gingerbread Cookies for Christmas


For the cookies:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the icing:

  • 3 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2-3 tbsp water


For the cookies:

  • Cream together butter and brown sugar. Add egg, vanilla extract and beat. Sift together flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking soda and add to the egg mixture. Combine to form the dough.
  • Shape into a flat disc, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 180ºC / 355ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the dough, cut out the cookies and place them on the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes and let them cool.

For the icing:

  • Sift the powdered sugar, add the egg whites and mix well. Add the water little by little until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Decorate the cookies and let them dry.


– If the dough becomes too soft while rolling it out and cutting the cookies, place it in the freezer for 5 minutes to firm it up.
– I recommend putting the baking sheet with the cutout cookies in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before baking, so that they keep their shape in the oven. Bake straight from the freezer.
