As I said this recipe is from Zoella but I've altered it a little bit. I found that this recipe makes about 50 small gingerbread men. it definitely makes heaps so if you want less you can halve recipe. These are so yummy You should definitely try these. If you do comment below and tell me what you think!
3/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of golden syrup (I prefer to use honey)
1 tablespoon of molasses
1 tablespoon of water
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 heaped teaspoon of ginger
100g of butter
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 3/4 cups of flour
Mix everything except baking soda and flour in a bowl.
and melt it over a low heat.
When everything is melted add the baking soda and stir quickly. It should change into a golden colour. Once everything is combined take it off the heat.
Slowly add the flour until it makes a dough and roll it out. Take a cookie cutter and make some cookies!
Place them into an oven for 8 minutes. Check them constantly because they burn easily. If you want the soft and chewy bake them for 6 minutes.
For the icing I used one cup of icing sugar, one teaspoon of lemon juice and 2 tablespoon on milk. I prefer a lemon icing because the sourness goes perfectly with the warm ginger spice.
I love the way they turned out. I think they are super cute and fun for a lazy winter day!
