Today’s Japanese Cooking Recipe is called Gingerbread Men or ジンジャーマンクッキー in Japanese. This is not a Japanese recipe but it was given from a great friend from the US and I thought I try this on Christmas Day for the family. We don’t really have a Christmas traditional dinner here like other countries but I think I will make something special for them tonight, I will share this tomorrow with everyone. Let’s see what we need to make our Gingerbread Men Cookies.
  • 200g flour, sifted
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 70g sugar or powder sugar
  • ⅓ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅓ tsp ginger powder
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • 100g soft butter
  • vanilla
  • 3 tbsp powder sugar for icing
  • 1-2 drop color water for icing

  1. Beat butter and sugar together in a bowl.
  2. Add egg yolk and vanilla and beat mixture until it is smooth.
  3. Add flour and spices, mixing everything together to form smooth dough.
  4. Mold dough into bowl wrap, in plastic film, and leave in a fridge for 30 min.
  5. Roll dough until it is about 5㎜ thick on a surface sprinkled with flour. Cut into shapes.
  6. Bake for about 20 min at 170- 180℃ until golden.
  7. Mix icing sugar and water, draw faces on the cookies.
