Hanging Gingerbread Decorations

09:00

With only a few days until Christmas, I thought it would be the perfect time to make a few more decorations that are edible!
Ingredients:
340g Self Raising Flour
3 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Ground Cinammon
175g Brown Sugar
1 Egg (beaten)
4 tbsp Golden Syrup
115g Butter 

Place the butter, sugar and syrup into a saucepan over a low heat, stir them until they are completely melted.  


Sift flour, cinnamon and ginger into the mixing bowl. Then add the syrup mixture from the saucepan into the mixing bowl with the beaten egg.


Mix everything together, once well mixed knead into a ball. Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes. Meanwhile preheat your oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5 and prepare a baking tray with greaseproof baking parchment. 


After the dough is chilled roll it out on to a surface until around half a cm thick. Use biscuit cutters for your desired shape, I used stars and gingerbread men for mine! 


Place the shapes onto the baking tray and using a cocktail stick make one hole in the top of each shape. This will allow them to hang as decorations. I added a few gold and silver pearls on mine before putting them in the oven.


Bake the biscuits for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown, once hardened place on a wire rack to cool! Finally thread and tie a piece of ribbon through the holes and hang them to your tree.



And that's it you have your edible Christmas decorations, enjoy! I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!
