If you’re looking for a classic dough then look no further than our gingerbread biscuits recipe. Made by the experts at Woman’s Weekly it’s a sure fire recipe that works every time. They take just over half an hour to make and are a lovely project to do with kids – they’ll have loads of fun stamping out their favourite shapes and decorating them with icing once they’ve baked and cooled.
To keep things classic when it comes to your biscuits you could go for gingerbread men. With their simple outlined faces they’re great for little ones to have a go at from an early age. All you’ll need are a few stamps and some writing icing (and maybe a sprinkle or two if you’re feeling fancy). Our gingerbread men recipe is one from the Hummingbird recipe and is one of their bestsellers, so you know it’s going to be delicious!
And if you’re looking for gingerbread recipes for cakes then we’ve got just the thing, too. Our traditional gingerbread cake recipe has been shared thousands of times and includes a simple step by step video to help you get the recipe right every time. It’s soft and fluffy with deliciously spicy flavours of ground ginger and cinnamon as well as a lip-smacking sweetness from golden syrup and dark treacle! The kids will love this one and it keeps well in an airtight tin for a few days so is a great recipe to make on a Sunday evening to see you through the week – if it lasts that long.
