Preparation steps

1.

For the dough, put butter in pieces with the honey and sugar in a saucepan and heat while stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl and let cool.

2.

Add the almonds with the flour, spices and eggs and thoroughly knead with dough hook of a hand mixer (maybe even adding a little flour). Stir the potash with rum, add to the dough and knead until the dough until further shines and no longer sticky. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and let rest in the refrigerator overnight. Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut large (about 10 cm/approximately 4 inch) figures using a template or cutter.

3.

Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, pull the parchment paper off the baking sheet and let cookies cool on paper on a wire rack.

4.

For decoration, beat the egg whites until stiff, adding powdered sugar and beating until a thick and shiny icing forms.

5.

Place the icing in a freezer bag, cut off a tiny corner and decorate the figures. Top as desired with sugar pearls. Allow everything to dry well and serve.
