"Christmas wouldn't be complete without gingerbread cookies. And since the holiday is all about sharing among other things, you will definitely want to (and can) share these vegan ones with everyone. Baker's ammonia (Hirschhornsalz) and potash (Pottasche) are traditional German baking leavening agents often used together in Christmas recipes. As an alternative, a total of 12 g of baking powder can be used. Simply sift the baking powder in the flour, without water."

  • Step 3/4

    When the dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 175°C/350ºF. Dust a work surface generously with flour. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out the dough to about 0.6 cm/1/4 in. thick. Dip a cookie cutter in flour and then cut out cookies. Then carefully place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (leave a space of 3 cm between the cookies). Roll out the remaining dough again to cut out more cookies.
