Before I start, I must tell you that there is a mixture of gingerbread spice in the big stores. I used 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon + 1 teaspoon ginger powder.
We mix the eggs with the sugar and hot water. Powdered sugar can be used because it is simpler and no longer needs to be mixed until it dissolves.
The butter must be at room temperature so we can rub it.
Put in a bowl honey, butter, pre-rubbed eggs, spices and mix until you get a kind of cream.
Add the flour gradually. Depending on the quality of the butter, honey, you may need an extra 100 grams of flour.
Homogenize very well, we must have a fragile dough that does not stick to hands.
Spread the thicker dough (1.5 cm) on the floured table. We cut the dough with different shapes and place it in the prepared tray. We have to put baking paper on the tray, and we place the cake with space between them because it will grow a little during baking.
Bake them in the preheated oven at 180 degrees C, for 15 minutes.
Let them cool.
Until it cools, rub the egg whites with the powdered sugar. We will have a very sticky white paste.
We decorate the gingerbread with this paste and we can sprinkle colored candies or other decorations.
It is perfect with a cup of coffee.
