For a traditional American treat, bake some gingerbread.
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks over heat until thickened. Add molasses and butter and mix well. Then, beat the whites in a separate bowl until they're foamy and add the sugar. Mix the two bowls together and fold gently.
Bake at 375°F (177°C) for 10 minutes in a pan where the gingerbread batter is about 1/2 inch thick. A 6 in x 8 in pan will do nicely. Test with a toothpick or by pressing lightly with a spoon until springy.
Sprinkle with dashes of the spices.
Shape the gingerbread into festive motives or decorate with frosting.
