'Made With Love by Betty' Gingerbread Biscuits

The Betty Stamp Lifestyle Blog Gingerbread Men Recipe


Gosh and golly I have MISSED my kitchen!

What makes it even more the sweeter is that my new flatmate is an OCD cleaner and has rearranged all my cupboards so that they make sense! Thanking you kindly new flatmate.

I have been waiting months to use my new rolling pin which, as you can see is the bee's knees! (Thank you Scout and Megan <3) You can find these babies on Not On The High Street

Dare I say it...the weather is turning and I need to cram in as much comfort food as possible before I set sail again to scorching countries. I'm going to be missing winter and cold Christmas' again which means missing out on my favourite belly warming foods. You can't get much more wintery than cinnamon & ginger, so here are my 'slightly early' Gingerbread men & heart biscuits made with love :)

What You'll Need //

220g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
75g butter/margarine
75g soft brown sugar
3 tbsp golden syrup

Makes approx 22 depending on cutter size

Oh...these 3 got stuck together so I had to eat them all in one go...


What to do //

Preheat oven to 160 degrees and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper
Sift flour, baking powder, salt, ginger and cinnamon into a mixing bowl.
In a saucepan on a low heat, warm the butter, sugar and syrup until all melted.
Pour the heated liquid into the mixing bowl and mix well to form a soft dough.

Lightly dust a clean surface with flour, knead dough lightly and roll out to about 3mm thick.

Cut into shapes and and bake in oven for 12 minutes.

Tip: Don't be fooled if they don't feel hard when they come out the oven, it's the syrup in them. Leave them to cool and they will harden.
