Gingerbreads from Carmel

Definitely the best gingerbreads I have ever eaten are those made by Carmelite nuns from St. Carmel. Josip in Đakovačka Breznica. Not just gingerbread, the sisters make great cakes that I have had the opportunity to try on several occasions. I was a little hesitant to ask for the recipe, but there was no need ... the sisters gave it very warmly, with another packet of fresh gingerbread.

Preparation steps

  • Knead the ingredients for the gingerbread. Leave the dough to rest for an hour. Then knead the dough once more, oil your hands and shape into walnut-sized balls. Place on baking paper.
  • Bake the balls at a temperature of 180-200 degrees. How long? It depends on the oven ... When the underside gets a darker color the gingerbreads are baked.
  • When they are done, make snow for the gingerbread men. Whisk the egg whites firmly with a mixer and then add powdered sugar. Finally add a little more lemon juice and continue to stir on steam - about 20 minutes.
  • Put the gingerbreads in one larger bowl and pour the finished snow over them and quickly mix everything. Then smooth each gingerbread especially quickly (run over them with your index finger) and place on smooth cellophane to air dry.
  • The next day, turn the gingerbreads over so that they dry a little on the bottom as well.
  • TIP: If at all possible, it is good to have help, that is, for someone to help you in this part with coating the egg whites because the egg whites dry quickly and those last gingerbreads will not be very smooth but more rough ... Or - make half the mixture ....
