Blogmas #22 - Homemade Gingerbread Cookies

6:39:00 PM

I love gingerbread. It's one of my favourite things to eat around Christmas time. So today I decided to make Gingerbread cookies. They are in different shapes to make them more fun.

Here is the recipe.


125g Butter, At room Temperature
100g (1/2cup) Brown sugar
125ml (1/2 Cup) Golden syrup
1 Egg , Separated
375g (2 1/2 Cups) Plain flour
1 Tablespoon Ground ginger
1 Teaspoon Mixed spice.
1 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda (Baking soda)
Plain flour to dust.

Step 1
Pre Heat Oven to 180 C
Line baking trays with baking paper or brush with butter.

Step 2
Mix together butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy with an electric mixer. 
Add golden syrup and egg yolk and mix until combined.
Stir in the flour, ginger, mixed spice and Bicarbonate of soda
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
Cover dough in plastic wrap and place in fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 3
Place dough between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out until 4mm thick. 
Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Place on tray about 3cm apart. 
Repeat with any excess dough.

Step 4
Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until brown. 
Remove from oven.
Transfer to a cooling rack to cool.

Step 6.
Decorate with icing. (If you want to)

That's it. It doesn't take too long to make. It's the waiting 30 minutes for it to rest in the fridge that takes the longest.

If you made these please send pictures to either my facebook, twitter or tag me on Instagram. Links in the side. 

I will most likely be taking these to my grandma's house on Christmas Day. 

On Thursday I will be making Sugar cookies. So stay tuned for that post.
