  • 25 dkg of plain flour

How to prepare cookies.

Sift flour on the pastry board. Add butter, ginger, caster sugar, vanilla sugar and salt. Chop then add one egg. Knead the dough. Put it in the fridge for 1 hour. After removing from the fridge, roll out the dough on a pastry board with some flour on it so the dough would not stick to it. Roll the dough until it gets around 4 mm thick. Cut out the cookies in any shape you like. Put the cookies on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Cover them with a beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes.
