Gingerbread recipe with fresh giner has wonderful flavour. We like to use this dough to make a Gingerbread House or simply bake cookie shapes for different occasions from Christmas to Valentines Day. Equally good decorated with icing or eaten as it is.

Method

Biscuits:

  1. Whip together egg, sugar and butter.
  2. Add ginger. Mix dry ingredients and fold them into the butter mixture.
  3. Roll the dough thin 3-5mm and cut favourite shapes.
  4. Bake for 8 min at 180C. 

Icing:

  1. Whip the icing sugar with edd white on fast for 7-8 min until it thickens
  2. Add a few drops of lemon (orcitric acid).
  3. Can be piped unto cooled biscuits, used to build the gingerbread house. Can be coloured with food colouring.
