How to Make Decorated Cookie House Hexen (Witch) House

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 31 steps you must follow to make Decorated Cookie House Hexen (Witch) House in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Make the pattern. Think up a house design you like, draw the pattern out on thick paper, and cut them out. See steps 3 to 8 for the parts you'll need. Please use the dimensions as a reference.
  • Step 2
  • I will explain how to make this hexen (witch) house.
  • Step 3
  • The pattern for the front and back of the house. Cut out windows and a door in the front of the house.
  • Step 4
  • The pattern for the side walls.
  • Step 5
  • The pattern for the roof.
  • Step 6
  • Pattern 1 for the chimney.
  • Step 7
  • Patterns 2 and 3 for the chimney.
  • Step 8
  • Pine trees.
  • Step 9
  • Make the cooke dough. Add the sugar to the softened butter and mix well with a whisk. Add the honey and vanilla, and mix well.
  • Step 10
  • Have the egg at room temperature. Beat the egg, and add it little by little to the butter mix in step 9, stirring well between additions. Add the sifted cake flour and mix until it forms a dough.
  • Step 11
  • Wrap the dough in plastic film, and let it rest in a cool place (not in the refrigerator) for several hours.
  • Step 12
  • Roll the dough out 4 to 5 mm thick on a dusted work surface. Place the pattern pieces on top and cut around them with a knife.
  • Step 13
  • Roll up the remaining dough, press a tart tin on it to cut it out and remove the excess dough to make the base.
  • Step 14
  • The cookie parts you need: 1 base; 1 whole and 2 half-pine tree shapes; 1 chimney pattern 1 and 1 reversed version of chimney pattern 1; 1 each of chimney patterns 2 and 3...
  • Step 15
  • ...1 piece each of the front and back of the house; 2 side walls; 2 roof pieces. Put them on a parchment paper lined baking tin, being careful not to mess them up.
  • Step 16
  • Brush with the egg wash, and bake in a preheated 180 °C oven for 14 to 15 minutes. Cool on a rack when they're baked.
  • Step 17
  • Make the icing. Put the powdered sugar in a bowl, add the egg white and mix well. Put into a piping bag. Thicker icing sticks better. Adjust the consistency with the amount of egg white added.
  • Step 18
  • Put the parts together using icing as glue. Spread the icing on the chimney parts as shown in this photo and stick together.
  • Step 19
  • When they are stuck together, put the chimney on it's side and leave until the icing has dried.
  • Step 20
  • Spread icing on the straight edges of the pine tree half-pieces, and stick them onto both sides of the full-piece pine tree piece and leave to dry. Decorate as you wish after it's dried.
  • Step 21
  • Spread icing on the edges of the side walls, stick on the front and back walls to assemble. Hold it with your hands for a few minutes until the icing has hardened a bit.
  • Step 22
  • The roof is heavy, so make some supports under it before sticking it on. Leave the supports in place until the icing has dried completely.
  • Step 23
  • When the roof has dried, stick on the chimney. Hold it on for a few minutes until it has stuck. If it doesn't slide off when you release it, leave the house to dry completely.
  • Step 24
  • If the roof of your house is not very steep like mine, it may not need supports and it may be easier to put a chimney on too. I think a house with a not so steep roof line is easier to assemble.
  • Step 25
  • The chimney is hard to stick on to the roof if there are jagged bits of cookie on the edges, so gently file them down to fit the rooftop so that it adheres better.
  • Step 26
  • Once the house is assembled, decorate the roof and sides with icing in any pattern you like. You can stick on cookies or sugar decorations too.
  • Step 27
  • If you pipe out some icing so that it hangs from the edge of the roof it looks like icicles. Pipe some icing on the roof and chimney so that it looks like snow.
  • Step 28
  • Stick the house onto the base. When everything has dried completely it's done. You can sprinkle on some powdered sugar if you like.
  • Step 29
  • I made a hole in the base and inserted a small LED light.
  • Step 30
  • It was hard to take the light in and out by the base, so I made a hole in the back of the house instead for this version. This house is about 20 cm square, and uses 1.5 times the dough in this recipe.
  • Step 31
  • I stuck macarons and chocolates on this house, and used a dredge to make a brick pattern on the walls.
