Hello everyone, a new day and a new Christmas recipe.
These gingerbread cookies are fluffy and yummi, and perfect to make and decorate with your children.
Gingerbread Cookies (20–25 cookies)
- 1/2 cup (115 g) butter
- 1/3 cup (65 g) brown sugar
- 2/3 cup (150 ml) molasses
- 1 large egg
- 3 cups (375 g) all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Put the butter and brown sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy.
Add the molasses and egg and beat well.
Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and all the spices.
Tip into the dough and beat for 1-2 minutes.
Put the dough into a plastic bag and leave to rest for about one hour (or more).
Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (180 ºC) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Dust your work surface with flour and roll out the dough.
Cut out gingerbread men with a cookie cutter and arrange on the lined baking tray.
Place the tray in the freezer for 10 minutes before baking in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
Leave to cool, and enjoy!
They make a pretty little Christmas gift…
I wish you all a great day!
