Gingerbread! 4 Days...




Hello! Today's post will be a quick one as I've basically done nothing today as I'm ill :( However the festivities have yet to fail as I made gingerbread biscuits today! I've never made gingerbread before but it was so easy (basically 3 steps) and they taste AMAZING! So, here's what I did...


(not my recipe)
You Will Need:

* 125g Unsalted butter
* 100g dark muscovado sugar
 * 4 tbsp golden syrup
 * 325g plain flour
 * 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
* 2 tsp ground ginger 


First, preheat your oven to 170°C, gas mark 3. Then in a medium saucepan, melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup on a medium heat. 

Whilst you're melting your ingredients, in a large bowl mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda and the ginger together. Once the heated mixture is melted, pour it into the dry ingredients and fold the two together until a dough is formed.

Then, roll out the dough in a surface that has been sprinkled with flour. Roll the dough out to a thickness of about 5mm and cut your shapes. You can do this using a knife or with some cutters like I did. 















Carefully place your cut out pieces on a tray lined with baking parchment/foil. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes and then leave to cool. 







You can then decorate your gingerbread if you wish, but they are just as delicious without! Enjoy!
