On the weekend I did some more baking! Probably needed a sugar kick/lift 🙂 So I made these dark chocolate cookies but shaped them into gingerbread shapes and then iced them 🙂
What you will need:
2 cups of plain flour
4 Tablespoons of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter – melted (I used margarine)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 TBsp of vanilla essence/extract
1 egg yolk
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F or 165 degrees C. Sift the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt together.
So this is optional – if you love your chocolate you can add choc chips into the mix or any other berries – cranberries, sultanas etc
I left it plain and started shaping my dough into gingerbread and other shapes.
Put in the oven for about 13 minutes – check at about 10 just in case your oven heats up quickly.
Let it cool on a wire rack and then you can ice them or decorate them 🙂
Delish! They taste great with a glass of milk! 🙂
