Instructions

Kitchen view
1
Mix the dry ingredients (the flour, ginger, yeast, cinnamon and cloves) together.
2
Mix the oil with the sugar until it has dissolved completely. Add the honey and egg and finally add the flour and spice mixture.
3
The mixture must be as even as possible. If it is too sticky, add more flour until it is firmer and easier to handle.
4
Place the dough in a sealable plastic bag, or in a hermetic plastic container. Chill for 3 hours.
5
Roll out the dough directly on the baking parchment. It can be rolled out with a rolling pin between two sheets of baking parchment and frozen before cutting with the cutters, to make it easier to pull away the paper.
6
Cut the cookies by shaping them as you wish. Bake in a preheated oven at 356ºF for 11 to 15 minutes for larger cookies, and for 6 to 8 minutes for smaller cookies, or until the edges turn brown.
7
Once baked, decorate them with icing sugar (beat the egg white, sugar and lemon juice into stiff peaks), simulating Christmas decorations. The cookies can also be decorated with melted chocolate.
