Add flour with baking powder, leaving less for the rolling out thereof. Blended into a smooth dough, put it in a plastic bag and leave to rest in a cool night. Roll out the dough very thinly on a floured surface and cut into various shapes. Cookies bake on a greased tray with butter or baking paper on no more than 5 minutes at 200 C. Cool slightly and peel off from the tray. Cookies are moistened with royal icing recipe that: Коледни cookies with royal icing . Can sprinkle with different decorations for cakes.
