Cream together the sugar, butter, gingerbread spice and a pinch of salt. Add one egg and the sugar beet syrup and whisk the whole thing. Add MorgenStund', ground almonds, wholemeal spelt flour and baking powder. Mix everything into a smooth dough.
Wrap the finished dough in a beeswax cloth or cling film and chill for at least 1 hour.
Roll out the dough on baking paper or a floured work surface and cut out the gingerbread men and reindeer. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake at 170 °C fan oven for approx. 8-9 minutes. Then let the gingerbread cool down.
Mix royal icing powder with water. Colour half of the mixed icing with the red food colouring. Pour the mixture into a piping bag or decorating pen and decorate the gingerbread with it.
