Traditional gingerbread cookies known by every adult and kid in Poland. They are hard after baking but getting soft with time.  I wanted to make them for a long time and a lot of good comments here convinced me. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

200 g honey

1 tsp gingerbread spices mix

few tbsp of caramel or 1 tbsp cocoa

100 g icing sugar

1 egg

400 g flour

3 tsp baking powder

Mix liquid honey with gingerbread spices, sugar, caramel and egg. Add the flour with baking soda. Knead the dough (it will be rather stiff). Roll it to 1 cm thickness and cut out cookies.

Put them on the tray coated with butter and sprinkled with flour.

Brush the cookies with water and bake at 190°C for around 12-15 minutes (do not over bake; it will make them too hard).

Additional info: you can add 1-2 tbsp of sour cream if the dough is not firm enough

In Poland we additionally coat these cookies with dark chocolate. You can do that only after they go soft.
