Preparation of the gingerbread cookies
In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, salt and spices.
In the bowl of your food processor, beat the butter and sugar for about 3 minutes, then stir in the eggs and molasses and continue to mix until you get a smooth dough.
Stir in the dry ingredients and when the dough starts to form a homogeneous ball, divide it in 3, wrap your dough balls in cling film and place them in the fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 356°F / 180°C and line a baking tray with a baking mat.
On a sheet of floured baking parchment, roll out the dough to a thickness of 6 mm, place your baking sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up.
Using a cookie cutter about 15-17 cm in diameter, cut out the snowflake shapes from your dough.
Arrange the cookies on your baking sheets and place them back in the freezer for 15 minutes before baking them for 12-14 minutes in the oven.
Let your cookies cool before moving them.
Preparation of the royal icing :
Whip the sifted powdered sugar with the egg whites until white and frothy, for about 7 minutes.
If you think the icing is too thick, you can add a few drops of water until you get the right texture, and if on the contrary it is too liquid, add a little powdered sugar and mix again.
Fill a piping bag with royal icing, fitted with a small round tip, decorate your cookies (see video) and sprinkle immediately with granulated sugar.
Leave your cookies to dry for 1 hour at room temperature.
