Gingerbread Men

Last Thursday we made gingerbread Men. We all helped to put in the ingredients and help mix it together. Then each of us cut out a gingerbread man and put on eyes and a nose. We had fun making our gingerbread men. You may like to make some in the holidays.

This is the recipe that we used:
Gingerbread Men
250g butter at room temperature
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup golden syrup
2 egg yolks
5 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp ginger
Place the butter, sugar and golden syrup and egg yolks into a bowl. Using an electric mixer beat until pale and creamy. sift flour, baking soda and ginger together. using your hands bring the dough together. Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out and cut shapes, Place onto lined baking tray. bake for 12 -15 Min's at 180 degrees. When cool decorate then eat.

We hope that you enjoyed making and eating them as much as we did.
