Christmas is just round the corner and we’re getting into the festive spirit with our fave gingerbread man recipe – give it a go and let us know what you think!
110g brown sugar
125ml golden syrup
1 egg yolk
375g plain flour
1 tbsp ground ginger
2 tsp mixed spice
Royal icing to decorate with smarties
Preheat the oven to 180C. Using parchment paper, line 2 baking trays. Beat the butter, sugar and golden syrup together until smooth and a light cream color. Beat in the egg yolk. Add the flour, ginger and mixed spice. Knead the mixture with your hands until it is smooth and there are no lumps. Cover the mixture with cling film and put into the fridge for around 30 minutes.
Once it has cooled, sprinkle some flour onto your surface and then roll out the dough. Using your own preference sized gingerbread man cutter, cut out the shapes and place on the baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes or until they are golden.
Using the royal icing sugar, you can make a face and add some smarties as buttons. Enjoy
