Gingerbread Men Garland
Recipe by Donna Hay from a donna hay christmas
125g unsalted
butter, softened
½ cup (or 90g)
brown sugar
? cup (or 230g)
golden syrup
2½ cups (or 375g)
plain flour, sifted
2 tsps ground
1 tsp bicarbonate
or baking soda
Preheat oven to 160°C.
Place the butter and sugar in an electric mixer and beat for
8–10 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until
pale and creamy. Add the golden syrup, flour, ginger and
bicarbonate of soda and beat until the mixture just comes
together to form a smooth dough.
Roll the dough out between 2 sheets of non-stick baking
paper to 4mm thick and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Using a small gingerbread man cookie cutter, cut out 32
shapes, re-rolling the dough as necessary. Place on 2 large
baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper.
Using the tip of a 6mm-round icing nozzle, cut two holes
from each gingerbread man and bake for 6–8 minutes or
until golden. Turn off the oven and allow to cool completely.
Thread the gingerbread men onto a length of ribbon and tie
the ends. Makes 32.
You can store the gingerbread men in an airtight container
for 2–3 days and hang them on Christmas eve.
