Welcome back to our newsletter ! November has nearly gone and we are all looking ahead waiting for Christmas celebrations.This time we would like to talk about Christmas food and more precisely about Christmas traditional sweet recipies because it is true that the Christmas season is a time to indulge in the most decadent, slurpy, chewy, and yummy homemade sweets and snacks.So we would like to provide you with the traditional recipie for Gingerbread Cookies or Gingerbread Men which will make your house smell of ginger and cinammon and will be a lovely Christams present for all your dear ones.
So here we go , let's start with the Ingredients:
350g/12oz plain flour, plus extra for rolling out
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
175g/6oz light soft brown sugar
1 free-range egg
4 tbsp golden syrup
Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and cinnamon and pour into the bowl of a food processor. Add the butter and blend until the mix looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
Lightly beat the egg and golden syrup together, add to the food processor and pulse until the mixture clumps together. Tip the dough out, knead briefly until smooth, wrap in clingfim and leave to chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.
Roll the dough out to a 0.5cm/¼ in thickness on a lightly floured surface. Using cutters, cut out the gingerbread men shapes and place on the baking tray, leaving a gap between them.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly golden-brown. Leave on the tray for 10 minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling. When cooled decorate with the writing icing and cake decorations.
We love them , they are beautiful, fill us with joy and happiness and they can also be original decorations for your Christmas tree !
