Gingerbread Cookies

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a lovely day with your family and friends. To celebrate this day I am sharing the recipe for these gingerbread cookies. I made them yesterday and they are very tasty and so easy to make.

What do you need?
300 gr self-raising flower
150 gr molasses
125 gr butter
75 gr dark brown soft sugar
3 ts ground ginger
2 ts ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt

Oven: 190C

First, mix the sugar and butter until it becomes creamy and fluffy. Add the molasses, ground ginger, ground cinnamon and salt to the butter and sugar and mix it well. Then add the self-raising flower slowly to the mixture and use your hand to create dough. It can take a while before a dough is formed. You can always add a bit of molasses or milk to make the dough less crumbly. Put the dough in some plastic foil and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Sprinkle some self-raising flower on the countertop and roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it's 3-4 mm thick. Use some festive cookie cutters and press them in the dough. Place the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper and put them in the oven for about 10 minutes. After you've taken them out of the oven place them on a wire rack to cool down. They are perfect to eat, but decorating them is even more fun. I used some writing icing from Dr Oetker, but you can always make your own.

These cookies are the perfect Christmas treat and they are so much fun to make. Decorating them is definitely the most exciting part so get your colourful icing out and let's decorate!

What is your favourite Christmas treat?
