This is the simplest and most amazing recipe for Gingerbread biscuits. We love them at Christmas but keep eating them all throughout the year because they are just so good.
Every year, as Christmas approaches (at what seems like the speed of light) I become more and more excited about all of the gorgeous decorations and all of the delicious food! 
 
For me Christmas food isn’t limited to December 25th. Christmas is an event, to be celebrated over many days, to remind us to appreciate everything we have, everyone we have and just how lucky we are to live the way we do.
 
One of my most favourite Christmas treats are Gingerbread biscuits (or cookies, whatever you want to call them, they are delicious). I’d love to be able to make one of the gorgeous gingerbread houses but I assure you, I am no Martha Stewart and decorating is not my forte. This biscuits can be enjoyed on their own or iced with royal icing that you can dye in any colour you want to make your festive treats come to life.
 
So here it is, the most perfect recipe for the most perfect gingerbread biscuits.
 

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of caster sugar
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon of bicarb soda
  • 200g butter (melted)
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
 

Method

Mix all sifted dry ingredients into a large bowl.
Add all wet ingredients into a bowl.
Pour wet mix into dry mix and combine.
Knead mixture together and flatten out into a disc shape. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Remove from fridge and using a surface and rolling pin lightly dusted with flour roll out mix to around 4mm thick.
Using cookie cutters, cut out shapes. Remove excess dough from around the shapes then use a spatula to move shapes to a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Knead and roll out remaining dough and repeat above step until no dough is left.
Bake in oven at 180°C for 10 minutes. If you’d like your biscuits to be crunchy then bake a few minutes longer.
Remove from oven and allow to completely cook before icing (or alternatively eat them warm as they come out because they are absolutely delicious).
