    Traditional Christmas treat

    Servings 1 persons, Cooking time: 60 minutes

    Ingredients

    • For the cookie dough:
    • 350 g all-purpose flour
    • 100 g hazelnuts or walnuts
    • 50 g almond flakes
    • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
    • ¾ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon orange essence
    • 50 g soft butter
    • 225 g honey
    • 175 g brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • ½ tablespoon candied orange peel or apricots, finely chopped
    • For the icing:
    • 225 g icing sugar
    • 1 egg white

    Directions

    • 'Preheat the oven to 180°C
    • Use the blender with the interval switch to grind the flour, the nuts, almond flakes, cocoa, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, baking powder, soda and orange essence to make a spiced nut flour. Use the food processor bowl and the steel blade to cream the butter, honey and sugar.
    • Add the eggs one by one to the butter-honey mixture. Then add the nutty flour and the plain flour bit by bit before adding the orange peel or apricots. Mix with the interval switch as briefly as possible.
    • Put the dough on a floured work surface and roll it out to 5 mm thickness. Use variously shaped cookie cutters (stars, hearts, trees etc.) to cut out festive shapes and put them on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. (Or form small balls with wet fingers, put them on a cookie sheet and flatten them by pressing down).
    • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and cool on a rack.
    • To make the icing: mix the icing sugar and egg white. Decorate the cold cookies with the icing using a piping bag or empty plastic syringe.
    • 45 minutes preparation time + 15 minutes oven time + 15-30 minutes for decoration
