500 grams of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 3 eggs, 350 grams honey, 4 teaspoon of vegetable oil, 27 grams of pumpking spice.

Cookie decorated by Zsofi and baby AJ

Mix dry ingredients:  flour, baking soda, and pumking spice in a bowl.  In separate bowl mix eggs and honey with a hand-mixer for 5 minutes. Then, add the dry ingredients to the mix, as well as oil and 3 tablespoon of water. Mix well until obtaining a smooth mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Sprinkle flour to cover countertop and roll dough to 1/3 of an inch thick approximately. Use a cookie cutter to make different shapes and bake for approximately 10 minutes at 395 F until rise.

Overbake cookies get hard. Do not let them get brown. Remove from the oven and brush cookie tops with egg yolk. Let them cool while preparing icing. Using a hand mixer, combine a few table spoons of pasteurized egg white, and a lot of powder sugar until it turns shiny and gets some consistency. It will require aproximatelly 10 minutes of mixing. Consistency and thickness depends on the amount of egg white. For the kids we suggest a little bit more runny icing to brush cookies. For adults, icing could be made thicket to be place in small squeeze bags used draw over the cookies.
