480 gr flour
225 gr powdered sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
60 gr soft butter
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon rum
ground spices (2T cinnamon, 2T ginger, 1/2t clove, 1/2t allspice)
Warm up honey and soften butter to make them more liquid, mix all ingredients together into a very dense, fairly dry dough. Add more rum if necessary, but try to keep dough as dry as possible.
Let the dough rest in the refrigerator one to two days.
1 tablespoon water
Roll out rested dough about 1-2mm thick (about 1/16") and cut out with cookie cutter - makes about 50 cookies. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and brush with egg mixed with water. Bake about 15 minutes at medium temperature. Cool completely before decorating.
1 small egg white
150 gr powdered sugar
Mix all ingredients until you get a smooth thick glaze. Make cake decorating cones out of parchment paper with a tiny hole or use a #1 or #2 Wilton round decorating tip. Fill cones with glaze and decorate cookies. Let dry overnight.
