For the recipe Gingerbread Men

For Tarts:

1 box Dr. Oetker Nona Tarts
200 g Butter (Room Temperature)
1 Egg
4 tbsp Dr. Oetker Nona Cocoa Powder

For Decoration:

Whole Almond
100 g Icing Sugar
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
Dr. Oetker Nona Rainbow Sprinkles




Preheat the oven 180°C.


Place Dr. Oetker Nona Tarts, butter, egg and cocoa powder in a mixing bowl. Mix well.


On a floured surface, roll the dough 0.5cm thickness. Cut the dough into gingerbread men with a cookie cutter and transfer on a lined baking tray. Place an almond on the chest of each gingerbread man and position one arm over the almond to make it look like the gingerbread man is holding the almond.


Place the icing sugar with lemon juice in a bowl, mix until smooth. Place the icing in a piping bag and cut a small hole to decorate the gingerbread men. Decorate as desired with faces, patterns and/or sprinkles.


May stored in a cool and dry place until you are ready to eat them.
