Gingerbread men

Daisy

Gingerbread men The perfect Christmas activity to make with your little one and yummy to eat after. My Mum made these delicious biscuits using a Jaimie Oliver recipe! 20131128-134521.jpg Ingredients... 300g plain flour 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda 2 tsp ground ginger ½ tsp ground cinnamon ½ tsp grated nutmeg 125g unsalted butter 100g soft light brown sugar 3 tbsp golden syrup

Method... Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4 and line 2 baking sheets with baking paper. In a large bowl combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves, then add it to the dry ingredients. Stir in until it forms a stiff dough, then cut it in half. Transfer the paper from the baking sheets to a work surface and place a portion of the dough on each. Roll out to 5mm thick, then cut out directly on the paper, leaving a 2cm gap between each. Save the cuttings to make more people, or round ginger biscuits. 20131128-134426.jpg Carefully lift the papers back onto the baking sheets and bake the gingerbread in the oven for about 12 minutes, or until lightly golden.5 Leave to cool on the sheet for a few minutes 20131128-134439.jpg If you want to hang them as decorations, now is the time to pierce a hole through the top of each with a skewer – then move to a wire rack. Once cool, ice the gingerbread men and decorate with sprinkles, sweets and edible glitter. I used these Icing pens which were perfect. 20131128-134505.jpg

 

I kept it simple, sometimes less is more!
