Gingerbread Christmas Cookies with Royal Icing

Welcome back to a new Betty-The-Baking-Princess recipe! Today I will show you a simple Gingerbread recipe with honey. The cookie dough is quickly made but it has to rest in the fridgefor at least 12 hours. Therefore, these are no last-minute cookies – they need a good Christmassy night’s sleep. 😉DSC00349b

Once the dough has had enough resting, you can use various cookie cutters to make the cookies. You bake them – and as soon as they have cooled down completely, you can decorate them!That’s the part I liked best! You can be creative, feel super Christmassy and design whatever you like. You can follow my instructions on how to work with Royal Icing here or on the pdf below.DSC00343instaDSC00346bAlready now I wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and who knows, maybe another Christmas Cookie recipe will follow…

Much love,
