These ginger and cinnamon cookies are perfect to make around the holidays. The traditional shape of little people makes for a festive and adorable treat, though you can use any cookie cutter you like. In this version, the cookies get an egg wash and a sprinkle of sugar for a delicate and classic finish. If you would like to make them extra special, you can make a simple powdered sugar glaze to top the cookies with once they are baked.

Ingredients

  • 230 grams flour
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 125 grams butter (cold)
  • 1 egg

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, ginger, and cinnamon and mix well.
  3. Form a hole in the middle of the mix and place the butter and the egg.
  4. Work the mix with your hands until it becomes a malleable dough that you can form into a ball.
  5. Wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for about 30 minutes.
  6. Place the cookie dough on a floured surface and flatten it using a rolling pin.
  7. Cut out the cookies in the desired shapes.
  8. Brush them lightly with egg white and dip them in sugar.
  9. Bake the cookies for approximately 20 minutes.

I love a cookie that is spiced and aromatic. These were very good. They were so easy to make and it was fun to cut the shapes with some of my younger family members. Do not neglect to dip them in sugar before baking as that sugary crunch is so great when you bite into these.
