Gingerbread Cookies

Hello, guys!

We all know gingerbread man are a symbol of Christmas and remind me of Shrek wich I love. Now that I think of its been a while since the last time I saw his movies. Maybe I’ll watch it these days is a good pre-Christmas movie.

Let’s get to the baking! For today, we are baking gingerbread cookies this recipe is from Jamie Oliver, which I love all his recipes. When I want to cook something he is the first site where I search. Also, this recipe is great to do with kids. I remember when my grandmother baked I was standing right next to here to help here with the shapes and still some to eat.

Ingredients:

  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 100g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup

Preparation:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC and line 2 baking sheets with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and the spices.
  3. Melt the butter, sugar and 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.
  4. 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 biscuits.
  5. Carefully lift the papers back onto the baking sheets and bake the gingerbread in the oven for about 12 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  6. Leave to cool on the sheet for a few minutes, then move to a wire rack. Once cool, you can decorate them with sprinkles, icing, sweets anything you want is up to you!
