Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year. Shops, streets, houses, cafes have a magical atmosphere and there are so many different tasty recipe to light up your mood. Here is a recipe for some gingerbread biscuits with optional filling. However, this recipe can be cooked also during a rainy autumn or spring day.

Ingredients (50 thin pieces)

  • 200 gr buckwheat flour
  • 50 gr rice flour
  • 50 gr oil
  • 50 gr honey
  • 7 gr baking powder
  • 1 apple
  • 100 ml milk/vegan milk (the quantity may vary depending on the consistency)
  • 3.5 tbsp of ginger
  • 3.5 tbsp of cinnamon
  • 3.5 tbsp of nutmeg
  • 1/2 tbsp of cloves grounded

Optional toppings

  • Cherry marmalade
  • Chestnuts cream
  • Peanut butter
  • Lotus Bischof cream


  1. After gathering the ingredients Image 1, start by weighting rice flour and buckwheat flour. Mix them in a bowl together with baking powder Image 2. For this step you can use a fork.
  2. Proceed with measuring the spices and add them to the bowl. Mix all the dry ingredients until well blended Image 3.
  3. Now you can add oil and honey. Mix all ingredients one more time, always with the help of a fork Image 4 and 5.
  4. Peel and grate the apple in the bowl Image 6 and 7. Mix the ingredients with the fork until they reach a crumble consistency Image 8. After that you can continue with your hands until you can form a non-sticky dough ball.
  5. Let the dough rest in the fridge for 30 min Image 9.
  6. Now it is time to roll out the dough and shape it into biscuits. Cut a piece of dough and roll it out in a thin layer - 5mm high. Please note that you should pour a bit of flour on the surface where you are rolling the dough so that it can be removed easily once shaped into biscuits Image 10.
  7. Shape the dough with the help of the biscuit shapes and transfer them on a baking tray with baking paper on it. Continue with this step until you finish the dough. Image 11
  8. Now you can decorate your biscuits. As toppings I used homemade cherry marmalade, chestnuts cream, peanut butter and lotus Bischof cream. I put half a teaspoon on each biscuit.
  9. Bake for 10/15 min until they reach a golden colour Image 12. You can enjoy them with some warm tea on the side.
