Yep. It’s that time of year where the kitchen gets crowded with tiny little humans! Gingerbread Blokes and Sheilas! These are delicious and I cooked them a little longer to ensure they were super crunchy! Feel free to decorate with little berries as buttons… GO WILD AND GET FESTIVE!

- Cover and Chill the dough for at least one hour (preferably overnight)
- Preheat oven 176 C
- Carefully roll out dough to a little thicker than 1/8 inch between two sheets or baking paper, generously sprinkling the bottom layer and the top layer of the dough with flour before rolling.
- Don’t roll too thin or it will be too crisp. You’ll Ginger SNAP your tiny humans and they’ll lose limbs!
- Remove the top sheet of baking paper and cut your dough using cookie cutters.
- Dip them in flour to ensure that the dough doesn’t stick to the cutter
- Freeze your cut out shapes for around 5 minutes to help them firm up
- Transfer your cookies to a baking tray and leave about 2 inches in between as they will expand
- Bake for around 10mins or until they appear only slightly browned on the edges.
- They’ll continue to firm up as they rest on the baking tray.
- Rest on the tray for around 5 minutes and then transfer to your cooling rack.
- Once they have cooled you can decorate them
- Mix your icing ingredients together and then pop into a piping bag.
- Make little faces or cover them completely in icing… it’s totally up to you!
- Store covered at room temperature for a few days or freeze them for longer term storage.
