Every year I like to get in the Christmas spirit and nothing screams Christmas to me more, than Gingerbread. Today, I have for you, a cooking blog. I know it’s been a while, but with my health being particularly bad over the past few months I haven’t really been doing a great deal except the bare minimum and resting a lot, but I thought it was time to do some festive baking, so without further ado, here’s my Gingerbread biscuits recipe for you, with photos included.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your biscuits.
350g Plain flour
175g Soft brown sugar
125g Butter/cooking spread
1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
1tsp Ground Cinnamon
2tsp Ground Ginger
4tbsp Golden syrup
1 Large egg
Icing to decorate (optional)
Preheat oven at gas mark 4/180c/350f
Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and ginger together in to a bowl.
Add the butter and mix together by hand until mixture is like breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar.
Lightly beat the egg and syrup together and add to the dry mixture. Mix well until it clumps together.
Using your hands, work the mixture until it comes together to make a soft dough. Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Remove from the fridge, place dough on to a floured surface, roll until about 1/2cm thick. Cut out desired shapes. Place on lined backing trays and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the biscuits from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Transfer on to wire rack and leave to cool completely.
Decorate as required or leave them plain.
I hope you give these easy to make biscuits a try. If you like gingerbread, I’m sure you’ll like these.
Thanks for reading.
Merry Christmas to you all.
