Food dyes (blue, black, orange) – for decoration
cooking time 2 hours 20 minutes
Prepare products for Christmas homemade meringue.
Divide the eggs into whites and yolks. We won’t Need the yolks. Make sure that not a single drop of yolk gets into the whites. Pour the whites into a clean, dry bowl.
Measure out the sugar and pour it into a bowl with the whites. When calculating the amount of sugar, be guided by the fact that the ratio of protein and sugar should be 1:2, sugar should be taken twice as much by weight as protein.
Mix the whites with the sugar with a whisk and put on a steam bath. For a steam bath, pour water into a saucepan for about 2 fingers, bring it to a boil, make the heat medium, put a bowl with a protein-sugar mixture on the pan, making sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. While stirring the mixture with a whisk, wait until the sugar crystals disappear. This will take about 5 minutes.
Pour the protein mixture into another bowl, it will have a temperature of about 60 degrees. to whisk the meringue, i used a kitchen machine, a large round whisk for whipping. You can beat the meringue with a mixer, but it will take more time.
Beat the protein mixture until it cools, and the meringue does not acquire a dense consistency, white color, glossiness, and the grooves from the mixer will not remain clear. About halfway through the whipping process, pour in the lemon juice.
Divide the protein mass into three parts – one part is left white, the second is tinted with a small amount of blue or blue gel dye, and the third – a little more paint over to get a deeper blue color.
Place the protein mass for the meringue in three pastry bags. I used the following tips: for meringue-snowmen made of white mass, a round nozzle with a diameter of 0.51inch (1.3 cm) is suitable, for blue meringue-a nozzle of open star, for blue meringue – a small star.
Place the meringue on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment. You can come up with what will look like your meringues or look at a photo as I push them. it turned out snowmen, a couple of snowflakes and small snowflakes-stars.
Garnish with pastry sprinkles before drying. dry the meringue in a preheated 176F degree oven for about 2 hours. Meringues should be completely dry, easily separated from the parchment.
Snowmen can be decorated further by painting their faces with the help of gel food coloring. Christmas meringue is ready! Here are such sweet Christmas treats we have turned out, the children will definitely like it. Bon Appetit!

Chicken egg 1 pc.
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon

cooking time 2 hours
We prepare all the necessary products for the gingerbread dough. First of all, we rub the softened butter with sugar. Add honey and chicken egg.
Using a mixer, mix the butter with the eggs and honey until smooth. In the process of whipping, add soda and spices. In the resulting mass, sift the flour. Knead a homogeneous smooth dough. Put the gingerbread dough in a cold place for 30 minutes.
After a while, roll out the dough to the required thickness. The thinner you roll out the dough, the more crispy the cookies will turn out and it will be much more convenient to collect the Christmas tree.
With the help of special molds, we cut out figures-stars of different sizes from the dough. Now we shift the blanks for gingerbread on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Send the baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes. I baked gingerbread in three sets. Ready gingerbread is allowed to cool. White chocolate is melted in a water bath or in a microwave at low power.
With the help of a pastry bag, we decorate the cookies with melted white chocolate at our discretion.
Now we collect the Christmas tree-we put gingerbread on top of each other from more to less. In order for the” Christmas tree ” to hold well, during the assembly process, the center of each gingerbread is smeared with chocolate.
