Ginger Biscuits with Thermomix

Who hasn't bitten into one of the delicious gingerbreads, the delicious ginger biscuits in the shape of a little man?

They are beautiful to look at and very tasty to eat, thanks to their mixture based on spices such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and, of course, ginger.

Among the shapes that can be used to make these biscuits, I prefer the classic one of the little man: do you remember Shrek? :-) So I'm sure the cookies will also be successful among children!


(20 pieces)
For the dough
- 80 g water
- 70 g honey
- 60 g brown sugar
- 20 g granulated sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp clove powder
- Nutmeg as needed
- 80 g unsalted butter
- 300 g plain flour
- A tsp baking soda

For the icing
- 250 g sugar
- 10 g egg white
- 10 g lemon juice

Let's cook

Put 80 g water, 70 g honey, 60 g brown sugar, 20 g granulated sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon powder, 2 tsp of powdered ginger, ½ tsp powdered cloves and grated nutmeg as needed into the mixing bowl and heat 3 Min. 100C Speed 1.

Add 80 g unsalted butter into small pieces and mix 30 Sec. Speed 2. Transfer to a pitcher.

Put 300 g plain flour, 1 tsp bicarbonate into the mixing bowl without washing it and mix 2 Min. Speed 3, adding the spicy liquid kept aside from the hole in the lid.

Put the mixture obtained to cool in a bowl, first at room temperature 60 Min., then in the refrigerator 60 Min.

Resume the dough, place it on a floured work surface and with a rolling pin roll it out into a sheet with a thickness of about 3-4 mm.

Cut the dough with pastry rings of various shapes and place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with backing paper.

Bake in preheated oven 20 Min. 160C, then leave in the oven off for 20 Min.

Prepare the icing.

Put 250 g sugar in the clean mixing bowl and pulverize 20 Sec. Speed 9.

Add 10 g egg white and 10 g lemon juice and mix 20 Sec. Speed 6.

Transfer the icing to a pastry bag with a thin tip and decorate the cookies.


If you can't find powdered cloves, put a dozen in a bag to freeze food and grind them into powder by mashing with a meat mallet.

The consistency of these biscuits is deliberately rather soft. If you want them crispier, roll out a sheet of less thickness (about 2 mm).

Prepare a larger quantity of icing and add food coloring to a part of it: you can decorate the cookies in a more festive version and hang them as decorations on the Christmas tree (remember, in this case, to make - before baking - a hole in the upper part of the biscuit to be able to insert a ribbon :-)).
