Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Perfect means a mixer for 6 to 10 minutes. Much longer because of the new zázvoru, it is important that it is well prepared and evenly distributed throughout the street. The dough may be a little thick, but it won’t break easily (if you don’t prepare it well, add one egg).

It was very impressive. The design of the zavorník is a small, elongated piece, enlarged on both sides. Choose a large, well-rounded shape.

In modern recipes, zázvorové koláčiky are baked immediately after mixing the dough. But it was different.

Tento moment is important for a good arrogant koláčikov. Yes, dnes nám postačí chladenie v hladinka.

Store cooled zázvorníky in an airtight container and put in a cold room, or chladniky. If it is difficult, for a few weeks the containers will begin to soften – they are already cooked at the beginning of December, or at the end of November. The apples are very fragrant.

Some zázvorníky recipes also add a little butter to the salad – especially for those who are in a hurry. Zázvorníky can be decorated soon after the holiday with cukrovou polevou, but this is not necessary at all. Sugar is in nich súdá a sús sú aj holé.
