Christmas Baking with Claire... Gringerbread Biscuits | Lifestyle

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

I'm back with another festive recipe for you all to try. Today it's all about gingerbread.

Gingerbread Men
What you will need...
250g unsalted butter
200g dark muscovado sugar
600g plain white flour
7 tablespoons golden syrup
4 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda

For decoration.....

whatever you feel like!


1.Pre heat your oven to 200ºc

2. Melt your butter, sugar and syrup in a pan on a low gentle heat. Be careful and try not to burn it because then you will have to start again.

3. Mix together the flour, sugar and ginger in a mixing bowl. Then add in the bicarbonate of soda and the cinnamon.
* You can even add in a hint of cayenne pepper if you wish. Just to give your gingerbread a kick.

4.Pour the melted butter, sugar and syrup into the mixing bowl. Stir together until it forms a dough.

5.Tip onto a floured surface and roll out with your rolling pin.

6. Grab your chosen cutter and cut out. Place onto a non stick tray and place it into your oven for 12 - 15 minutes.

Now your ready to decorate. Enjoy

I hope everyone has a happy and safe Christmas, and I will be back in the New Year.
