240 g plain flour
60 g Dansukker Icing Sugar
200 g butter or margarine, softened
1 egg yolk

Meringue mixture
2 egg whites
65 g Dansukker Brown Sugar Dry
10 g gingerbread spice

Mix the flour and icing sugar in a bowl. Add the cut up fat and mix to breadcrumbs with a fork. Add the egg yolk and work into a dough. Put in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour. Whisk the egg white until stiff. Mix in the sugar and spices carefully.

Roll out the dough into a rectangle measuring about 50 x 30 cm. Spread the meringue mixture over the dough. Roll it up. Place in the freezer for about 1/2 hour so that the roll is thoroughly chilled. Set the oven temperature to 160 °C. Cut into slices a good 1/2 cm thick and place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 20 minutes.
