 Ingredients

  • 125g Butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar1
  • 1/3 cup golden syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 2 and a half cups plain flour 
  •  
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cups icing sugar, sifted

Steps

  1. Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup together in a saucepan, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly.
  2. Whisk egg and butter mixture in a large bowl. Sift flour, spices and soda over the butter mixture and mix until combined into a smooth dough. Flatten into a disc shape, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30-40 minutes or until just firm.
  3. Roll out dough on a floured surface to ½cm thickness. Cut into shapes using 10-12cm gingerbread people cutters and use a lifter to transfer onto lightly buttered baking trays. Bake at 180C for 8-10 minutes or until cooked and lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes on trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Beat egg white until foamy then gradually beat in icing sugar until piping consistency. Spoon into a piping bag and use to decorate cooled gingerbread.
    Enjoy!
