Preparation steps

1.

Mix honey, sugar, butter and milk and bring to a boil in a saucepan and let cool. Add egg, flour, cinnamon and cloves and lemon peel into honey mixture. Dissolve potash in milk and mix into dough.

2.

Shape dough into a ball and wrap in foil and refrigerate overnight.

3.

Roll out dough about 1 cm (approximately 1/3 inch) thick and cut out train shape with a cookie cutter or a template and place on a lined baking sheet. Brush with cream and bake in preheated oven at 160°C (approximately 320°F) for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool and decorate with colored icing.

4.

Mix powdered sugar and lemon juice. Divide icing into portions and tint with food coloring, as desired. 

5.

Fill a freezer bag with icing and cut off a small corner and pipe icing over train to decorate. Let icing dry. To serve, arrange cookies on a plate.
