Gingerbread biscuit recipe
Everyone will love the smell of these homemade gingerbread biscuits baking in the oven.
Gingerbread is synonymous with celebration and this easy gingerbread biscuit recipe from Le Petit Gâteau will sweeten any special occasion, including your Christmas festivities.
In the Middle Ages, you had to belong to a guild to bake gingerbread – it was considered a specialised trade – but thankfully there are no such rules these days.
Everyone’s an expert in their own kitchen, and children can help measure, mix and roll out the dough. The best part is getting creative with cookie cutters. Christmas shapes include stars, reindeer, trees and candy canes. This same recipe can be used to make gingerbread men and women.
Over the centuries, the ginger flavour has been enhanced or interchanged with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom and anise, while sweeteners have included molasses, brown sugar, corn syrup and honey.
