This year we thought we'd make gingerbread stars and then dress them up as ornaments....bit of fun?
1/4 c dark brown sugar
60mls golden syrup
1 3/4 c plain flour
1/2 tsp. bi carb soda
2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line your trays with non stick paper
Beat together butter and sugar until pale and creamy then slowly add golden syrup till just combined
Sift in flour, bi carb soda, salt and all spices. Using a wooden spoon mix everything together including the water until a soft dough occurs.
Work dough together gently on a lightly floured surface then roll out and cut to the shapes you require. (we used stars, but angels, doves, Santa etc. would work too!)
Bake for 10 min or until lightly browned.
