Today I will share with you a very simple glaze recipe.
Most of you who have dealt with baking breads, pies and buns,
certainly used the yolk or just beaten egg for lubrication products
before you put them in the oven.
It gave luster and a yammy look to the pastry.
If you decide to make gingerbread for Christmas, this recipe is also useful to you.
Try it and you'll see how shiny your gingerbread will be!
For brightness make this glaze colorful - red, green, etc. ..
The recipe is very simple: Beat egg yolks and add a drop of food coloring.
But, I have some advice for you which I think is very important,
otherwise your cookies will disappoint you.
1. Apply the glazing on the cookie with a brush before baking. Only one layer!
2. Put second thin layer with a brush on hot cookies right after getting them from the oven.
This glaze dries very fast. I'm starting to draw on it with royal icing after 1-2 hours.
If you apply many layers of glaze, the surface will just crack and look like broken glass.
(in the left side of the pic a tree with a few layers, in the right with one layer)
Very often I stop at the first stage, putting only one layer of glaze.
For example, if it is chocolate cookies and my glaze is dark chocolate color.
