    Moving Gingerbread Train Cookie

    My motivation to try this moving train cookie began when my 4 year old son was decorating standard gingerbread cookies with frosting. I utilized a (modified) windup Lego auto but a few of the Tomica vehicles are also quite effective and perform pretty nicely.

    Inside a substantial mixing bowl cream butter and brown sugar collectively. (You are able to substitute dark brown sugar if you would like the dough really dark brown I never find it vital when you do not have it on hand) Add molasses and egg. Mix properly.

    Sift flour, baking soda and pumpkin pie spice together less difficult and add to wet mixture.

    The dough is going to be hard to mix. If you have a stand mixer use it! I never so I generally wind up mixing it with my hands to ensure everything is nicely incorporated. May possibly as well get started getting dirty now for the reason that it is going to occur sooner or later with this a single!

    Divide your dough in half, wrap with plastic wrap and chill until firm about 1 1/2 hours.

    In a modest mixing bowl sift with each other powdered sugar and cream of tartar. Utilizing and electric mixer add egg white and beat until it can hold its shape. Spoon into a prepared piping bag.

    There is certainly a lot controversy over applying raw eggs in royal icing as a result of the possibility of bacteria. I only use neighborhood organic eggs so I really feel fine about it, but feel free to use what ever royal icing recipe that you are comfortable with.

    Sorry for not picturing the royal icing step. My images had been f you have with each other way too dark and blurry.

    Draw and reduce out a pattern of pieces you will need to reduce from the dough to construct a train. My patterns are pretty crude but you’ll need anything measured out.

    On a lightly floured surface roll out dough to approximately 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Using a table knife reduce the shapes you will need.

    Transfer pieces to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 12 15 minutes. You might want the cookies to be difficult adequate as to not break for the duration of they may be assembly.

    Tip: While you take the gingerbread out with the oven and it is actually nonetheless hot recut your pieces so they may be precisely exactly the same size as your pattern. You don’t need to but you could be pulling your hair out when it comes time for you to assemble and decorate in case you never!

    You will prefer to construct the engine auto about what ever moving object you are working with so it will be the right size. Hold this in mind any time you draw out your pattern! :)

    Due to the fact I made use of a windup Lego auto I wound it up as far because it would go and put breaks around the bottom to help keep the wheels from turning.

    Use the royal icing like glue to put the wheels on your train automobiles. Let sit till hardened.

    Make the engine automobile about your moving contraption and continue assembly together with the other train cars. Use cans, glasses or something else heavy to help keep your cookies in location until the icing sets. As soon as it can be set you’ll be able to easily move the pieces about to decorate them.

    I located it less difficult to decorate the engine automobile devoid of the Lego automobile underneath it so once the engine car is total gently lift it up and put it back on best of your moving contraption.
