Thermomix Gingerbread

Thermomix recipe 100% made in Italy for Gingerbread cookies
Thermomix Gingerbread

Years ago I published a recipe similar to gingerbread cookies, but today’s is the original.

For those unfamiliar with gingerbread cookies, also known as gingerbread, they are spiced cookies usually shaped like little men, trees, stars, or other Christmas shapes, typical of Northern Europe and North America.

They can be made both to be eaten and to be hung as decorations on the Christmas tree.

For the preparation, I relied on Laurel Evans and her recipe, I just adapted the preparation to the Thermomix.

As for the ingredients, you often find ready-made spice mixes for gingerbread, while molasses is usually found in organic stores or in well-stocked supermarkets. Alternatively, if you really can’t find it, you can substitute it with honey, but remember that it will change both the taste and the texture.

With that said, you are free to choose your cookie cutters and the decoration with icing, or you can even leave them natural, they will still be good.

This year I will package them in little bags and give them away for Christmas along with the Thermomix panettone!

All that remains is to wish you a pleasant weekend and leave you with the recipe for Thermomix gingerbread cookies.

I leave you with the recipe for the Thermomix Gingerbread.

See you for the next recipe!
