Gingerbread Recipe

- Ingredients -

 

3 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp ground ginger

1 3/4  cinnamon

1/4 ground cloves

85 g butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1/2 cup dark syrup or molasses

2 tbsp vanilla

 

- Method -

 

In a small bowl, whisk together baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon and cloves until well blended. In a separate bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and the egg on a medium speed until well combined. Then add the dark syrup and vanilla and mix again. Add in the dry ingredients until smooth. Divide the dough into two sections and wrap each half in glad wrap. Let it sit at room temperature for between 2-8 hours or overnight. While the dough is sitting, preheat oven to between 175-200 degrees (celsius) and prepare two baking trays with baking paper. Start with one-half of the dough and roll it out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface. Cut out the biscuits with cookie cutters as desired and place them on the parchment, a few centimetres apart. Bake each sheet in the oven for up to 9 minutes (or until dark brown, not yet burnt). Allow the gingerbread cookies to cool so they'll firm before decorating with icing. For that, mix together icing sugar, egg whites and a little lemon or vinegar. And you're done, enjoy!
