This is one of our favorite desserts during the winter holidays and other special occasions. We coated the moist gingerbread biscuits with a rich, thick sugar glaze that makes the flavors pop. You’ll only need one more thing with the gingerbread cookies: a tall glass of warm milk.

Ingredients Needed for Glazed Gingerbread

7 ounces of butter
½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
½ cup milk
3 tablespoons of honey
2 1/2 cups flours
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
nutmeg
2 egg whites
salt
½ cup powdered sugar
½ lemon

How to Cook Glazed Gingerbread

  1. Add the butter and the brown sugar in a large bowl.
  2. Set your mixer at medium speed and start mixing.
  3. Separate the egg white from the yolk of one egg.
  4. Keep mixing while you add one egg and one yolk, the milk, and honey.
  5. Sift the flour and add it to the bowl. Add the ginger powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and some nutmeg.
  6. Mix again until you obtain a smooth and thick dough.
  7. Cover it with plastic foil and refrigerate the dough for the next hour.
