12 Days of a Crafty Christmas.

The Eleventh Day of a Crafty Christmas: Cookie Fun

Christmas Cookies are a must for any house hold this time of year, 
and they are so much fun to make.

This Ginger Bread Recipe is used in our house
 at least once every few months so 
I know they will get eaten and dipped in 
melted chocolate  makes them so special.
They are super yummy and look great to either 
share with visitors or use as a gift.

I have found this particular recipe to be 
great for kids as it is not too spicy.

Also I found these great labels to 
download and print off to decorate
your home-made cookie gifts.

Happy baking!

2 tablespoons of treacle or golden syrup
75g unsalted butter
2 cups plain flour
1/2 a teaspoon bicarb soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 a teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 of a cup caster sugar
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon milk
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius. 
Melt butter and treacle or golden syrup in a saucepan or microwave.
Sift flour, cinnamon, ginger and soda into a large bowl.
Add a pinch of salt and pepper and the sugar & stir in well.
Add the treacle and butter mix and the beaten egg, 
as well as the milk and mix until combined.

Turn the dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap and form
into a long sausage shape, wrapping it up tightly in the plastic.
Refrigerate for 30 mins.

Once chilled, flour a surface and knead til the mix is smooth
and pliable. Roll out and cut using your favourite cookie cutter shapes.
