Mix the rest of the ingredients until everything is very well incorporated and starts to get creamy.
Add the dry ingredients in two additions. Mix just until each addition disappears.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate flat for at least about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven at 350F
Roll very thin and cut into your preferred shapes.
At his point you can sprinkle some colored sugar or powdered sugar.
Bake for 9-10 minutes.
Let cool completely before enjoying!
BROWN SUGAR SYRUP
Bring to 114ºC for 1 minute and then remove from the heat. Let cool completely. You should end up with about 240g of syrup and you can store the extra in an airtight container.
Process everything in a blender until really soft and it has a spread-like consistency.
