Ingredients for Gingerbread Men

  • 175 g Plain Flour (Maida)
  • 85 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Soda Bicarbonate
  • 1 tsp Ginger Powder
  • 50 g Butter rubbed into fine breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 1 Small Egg beaten
  • Black Currants to garnish

How to make Gingerbread Men

  • Combine the maida, soda bicarb and ginger in a bowl.
  • Add the butter and sugar.
  • Now add the golden syrup and egg.
  • Mix well to form a smooth dough.
  • Divide the dough into 2 portions.
  • Roll out one half onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut out gingerbread men using a cutter and place them on a greased baking tray.
  • Use the currants to make eyes and buttons.
  • Repeat until all dough is used up.
  • Place the tray in a preheated oven at 190C for about 10 minutes until the biscuits turn slightly dark.
  • Remove and cool.

Notes

Instead of currants, use cream to decorate the gingerbread men as desired. Bake the biscuits and once slightly cooled, use cream to make the eyes, dress and use gems for buttons.
