Making Gingerbread Biscuits

Making Gingerbread Biscuits








This week, the Reception children had lots of fun making gingerbread biscuits! We followed a recipe and especially enjoyed eating the biscuits!


Have a look at our cooking skills in action, below!


Here is the recipe that we used, you may want to try and make them at home.



Makes 15-25 depending on size of cutters used

350g plain flour

  • 100g butter
  • 5 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  • 175g light brown soft sugar
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 medium egg 

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.

  1. Put the flour, butter, ginger, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda in a mixing bowl. Mix it all together with fingertips until crumbly. Add the sugar, syrup and egg and mix until it forms a firm pastry mix.
  2. Using the rolling pin, roll out the pastry to about 5mm thick. Make sure the surface and the rolling pin are well dusted with flour. Use gingerbread men cutters to cut out shapes.
  3. Place the cut out pastry on a greased or non-stick baking tray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Check after 10 minutes. Gingerbread may be ready after 12 minutes in a fan assisted oven.
