Gingerbread Men Recipe


I feel like Christmas time is all about the ginger, one of my favourite is gingerbread. I like to make gingerbread men each year, they are so easy and taste so good. You could also hang them on your tree.

Ingredients
350g Plain Flour
1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda 
2 tsp Ginger  
1 tsp Cinnamon 
125g Butter 
175g Brown sugar
1 Egg
4 tbsp Golden syrup

Method
1. Preheat the oven to 180ºc.
2. In a bowl, stir together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, and cinnamon.
3. Stir in the butter until it looks like breadcrumbs - it can be done in a food processor. Then stir in the sugar.
4. Lightly beat the eggs and golden syrup into the mixture, until it's clumped all together.
5. Put in cling film and keep it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
6. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough, then cut out your desired shapes.
7. Place onto a tray and cook for 12-15 minutes then place on a cooling rack and allow to cool.
8. Once cool decorate with icing  - to make the icing, mix together icing sugar and water until there it's running and pipe with a piping bag.
