Ingredients

 

Cookies

  • 2 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup Neocate
  • 120 g Nuttalex margarine
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup golden syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Icing

  • 250-300 grams pure icing sugar (sifted twice)
  • 2 drops of lemon juice
  • 1 egg white

Method

Cookies

  • Preheat oven 160C.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and knead until smooth.
  • Roll the kneaded dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until approximately 1 cm thick.
  • Refrigerate the dough until chilled for about 30 minutes.
  • Place chilled dough on bench and remove the baking paper.  Cut out shapes using a cookie cutter.
  • Place on a tray lined with baking paper and then bake for 10-12 minutes until slightly golden.  Tip:  Cookies will expand when cooking so make sure you leave approximately 5cm space between cookies on the tray.
  • Decorate with icing when the cookies are cool.

 

Icing

  • Place your egg white into a medium-sized mixing bowl.  Make sure that all your equipment is washed and completely dry and free from impurities or fats as grease will cause the icing to fail.
  • Gradually add one tablespoon of pure icing sugar at a time to the egg white.  Ensure you beat the mixture well with a wooden spoon between each addition until the sugar is thoroughly dissolved. Continue until the mixture is very white and smooth and has reached the consistency of a thick syrup.  It is not recommended that an electric beater be used due to the risk of over beating.
  • Add 2 drops of lemon juice and continue beating for a further 2 minutes before adding more icing sugar. Once the lemon juice has been added, decrease the amount of icing sugar added to a teaspoon and continue mixing in each addition until the mixture is firm enough to hold a peak.
  • The icing is now ready for use and we would recommend using the icing immediately as this is when it is at its best.
