Honey Gingerbread cookies

Hi all,

I haven’t baked in a long time but I had some spare time up my sleeve and made these honey gingerbread cookies.

Gingerbread cookies

What you will need:
2/3 cup of brown sugar
100g of butter (unsalted)
1 egg
3 and half cups plain flour
3 teaspoons of ground ginger
2 teaspoons of baking powder
2/3 cup of honey (golden syrup as alternative)

1. Cream sugar and butter
2. Add egg
3. Add all dry ingredients together and add to the wet mixture
4. Add the honey
5. Make into a dough wrap in cling wrap and chill in the fridge for half an hour
6. Roll out dough to 5 mm thick and cut shapes
7. Bake in 160 degree oven for about 10 minutes depending on oven.

For the icing:

1 egg white and 1 cup of icing sugar – beat the egg white to soft peaks and then add the icing sugar.
